My current work in progress:

Seaforth designed by Alice Starmore, knit in British Breeds 5-ply Guernsey Wool on US 3 needles.


Bogus Bohus

Here’s something I’ve been working on for a little while:


This is a cowl, my own design, based on the lovely patterns of Bohus knitting. I’m using all Rowan yarns, a mixture of fingering weight and laceweight yarns (held together to make a fingering weight) — the fibers are a mixture of wool, mohair, silk, alpaca, and cashmere.


It’s knitting up into a lovely light soft cowl that will be very warm and cozy to wear! The pattern will be available once completed and tested.

Meanwhile, Loki is enjoying a game of hide and seek.

  6. Can you tell me, when you use 2 strands of a lighter weight yarn to try to equal a heavier one, do you twist them together to try to duplicate a plied yarn or just carry them parallel? I find if I just carry them together they knit up heavier than if they were twisted to mimic a plied yarn. Thanks.

  7. Nice!!!

  8. That’s beautiful! I’ve just “discovered” Bohus this past year, I really wish there was more literature out there on it. Thanks for making this. 🙂

  9. Gorgeous! Just absolutely positively gorgeous. Be still my beating heart!

  10. Lovely work, as always.
