I’m pleased to announce that two of my designs, previously published in Interweave Knits, are now also available for purchase here at DCD.
First up is my Goldsmobile Top:
The Goldsmobile Top was inspired by a flexible approach to dressing for fall: even the sunniest days are book-ended with cooler mornings and evenings. This cabled top is designed to work equally well over a sleek turtleneck or a well-loved plaid flannel shirt. There is no shaping in the body and the armholes are sized to accommodate layering.
The body is knit flat from the bottom up, beginning with a split hem. Stitches are picked up from the body for the turtleneck and armhole edgings, each of which is worked in the round. A tubular cast-on and cast-off are used for the hem and turtleneck to ensure that both have sufficient stretch.

Next up is my Whitehorse Pullover:
The Whitehorse Pullover is inspired by all of the things that make a sweater your favorite sweater: not just comfort and coziness, but also a simple, timeless texture with the ability to be dressed up or dressed down. Whitehorse is a traditional drop shoulder sweater; to contrast with the oversized fit of the body, the arms have a slimmer fit.
Whitehorse is knit flat from the bottom up in pieces and seamed. Stitches are picked up for the turtleneck, which is worked in the round. A tubular cast-on and cast-off are used for the body, sleeves, and neck to ensure that all of these edges have sufficient stretch.
