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.

Springtime Legs
Springtime Legs
In the spring, everyone, Canadians especially, quickly don their capris and shorts. But the weather can still be cool. Knee highs allow us to take full advantage of the sun, and still protect against that chill. The side lace panels remind me of tulips, the perfect springtime flower. The ribbing was added front and back to ensure a snug fitting leg, making these perfect for hiking and strolling in the springtime sunshine. Charts.

Georgian Bay Cardigan
Georgian Bay Cardigan
This Fair Isle cardigan is inspired by life at the lake in the Georgian Bay area. The design is knitted circularly whenever possible, using steeks (bridge stitches) to form a cylinder that is cut open for the cardigan front opening. Steeks are also used for the sleeve openings and even the neckline, all to keep you knitting with the right side facing you. The only purl stitches are in the ribbing, top section of the sleeves, bands, and collar. Designed by Denise Powell [email protected] Ravelry: DoctorKnit

Colourwash Socks
Colourwash Socks
I named this pair of socks ‘Colourwash’ because they remind me of watercolour paintings. They feature a heart motif and an afterthought heel. This heel allows uninterrupted patterning around the foot which is why I have used it again even though my favourite heel is the standard heel flap and gusset. These socks make the perfect pair on a gloomy day of rain. On a rainy day, what's better than socks that say 'you are my sunshine' and 'you make me happy'? They warm up your heart and your toes!
