The Castle Nursery Pattern
The Castle Nursery
This piece is was inspired by an art project Jo's youngest daughter constructed while in university and the architecture theme for this issue. Jo’s daughter created this large castle wall full of windows, and you can see the rooms inside each window. Jo kept the project pieces long after her daughter graduated, knowing this idea would make a wonderful cross-stitch series. This isn’t a project for the faint of heart, the cross stitching is easy, the assembly will require a good mood. Full charts and step by step assembly instructions.

Whoo Baby! Cardigan and Hat Set
Whoo Baby! Cardigan and Hat Set
The little one in your life is worthy of wearing the very soft Merino wool! To maintain the softness of Dona yarn in crochet, you need a modern stitch that is elastic and light. Working with a slightly larger hook to get the gauge listed for this pattern is essential, and the extended single crochet stitch is one of the ‘stretchy-est’ crochet stitches that is still solid in appearance but doesn't feel like those stiff baby sets from the ‘70s. The young wearer of this hat and cardi will turn even more heads, and everyone will ask, "Whoo's that cutie?"

Château Laurier cardigan
Château Laurier cardigan
The Château Laurier Cardigan is knit in two sections. The first part, knit flat, makes up the back and sleeves. When it’s finished, the two sleeve seams are sewn up leaving a large hole at the center. The second part is knit by picking up stitches around the center opening. It creates the collar and body of the cardigan using a combination of short rows (knit flat), and knitting in the round to build its shape. A little bit of striping, a button hole, and an icord bind off finish the sweater. Fiona Stevenson likeafox.ca Instagram: @fiona.knits Ravelry: Fiona Stevenson Designs

Notre Dame Crescent Shawl
Notre Dame Crescent Shawl
This shawl was inspired by the heartbreaking fire of Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris in 2019. The yarn chosen for this project has the colours of stained glass, and the overall shape of the shawl is suggestive of a section of the cathedral’s famous rose window. The horseshow lace motifs are reminiscent of gothic arches, and the columns between the arches evoke the flying buttresses that are quintessential traits of gothic architecture.
