She describes herself as a simple Canadian girl who loves to knit & create classic, seamless knitting pattern for her 8 little ones. She has been busy creating quite a few new patterns since the last time she was here, in between homeschooling her children and daily life (One day she will have to show me her ways!) You can see her collection (new and old) on her website or Ravelry

Abernathy cardigan and cap - Abernathy Cardigan is a sweet little unisex cardi that is worked from the top down, seamlessly, with an eyelet yoked collar. With a stockinette stitch body & garter stitch hem, front bands, cuffs and collar, it is simple enough to show off variegated yarns nicely. Four buttonholes are worked, beginning at the top right band and more can be added, if desired. Generous ease, 2-3” (5-7.5cm), allows this to be a wonderful layering piece that is light and soft; perfect for wee babes and little ones alike!

The Abernathy Cap is an adorable little unisex hat that is quick to knit up and works beautifully with variegated yarns or in a solid colour. It is begun at the crown, with eyelet increases in a circular pattern, then simple stockinette stitch to the brim. Garter stitch brim & I-cord ties finish this vintage style cap off sweetly!

Mrs. Warford - Mrs. Warford is reminiscent of an era gone by. The low, scooped neckline, under bust gathers, fitted sleeves; small buttons and embroidered waistband speak of romanticism and simple elegance. It is a longer, mid-thigh length cardigan with a diagonal pin stripe stitch pattern mimicking the popular pin striping and bias cuts of garments from another time.
In order to modernize and make this a wearable garment for today, the shaping from the waist down is done with increases at the sides to create a more fluid, fitted look. It features sizing that is easily adjusted to fit each wearer with precision and comfort. It is begun with a duplicate stitched waistband, then knit seamlessly from the waistband up through the bodice. The sleeves are worked by picking up stitches around each armhole, using short rows to shape the sleeve cap, the worked in the round to the cuff. The lower body is worked from the waistband down. It is sure to please knitters of all levels.
