When I a couple of months ago received the yarn to start designing this shawl, there was a choice between 9 different colors. Seeing the package I opened, can you imagine how hard it was to make a choice? (Read more on demu.dk/blog)
It’s live! It has been for a little week now. The launch frenzy and everything around it made me so busy that I have had to postpone some things in order to make room for this! (Read more on demu.dk/blog)
About 1 1/2 week ago I published a new free pattern: Biased Stripes.

Today, the Deep Fall issue of Knitty (the first ever and very popular internet knitting magazine) went live. It went live with my cardigan design in it!! I couldn’t believe it when I got the email from Amy saying they had chosen my design. I had thought I’d just want to try to submit it, and was prepared to be rejected. But look – here it is!
At it again – this time I’ve “just” written up the pattern for the socks I made my mom for her birthday! I got a lot of comments on them, and was thinking I could just as well make it available for others.
Time for another pattern release: *Starbuck*!
My first sweater design, but oh how I love it!
It’s a relatively simple sweater, worked top down, without any seams. I’ve used the contiguous method for the shoulder & sleeve shaping, a method which at the moment is my preferred one for sweaters. I love the effect of the silver colored DK weight yarn together with the fingering weight black yarn on bigger needles – it makes the sweater cozy, slouchy if I want it, but it could also be worn more fitted!
I have just released a new pattern, called Squishy Short Rows. It is a cowl worked on big needles with any weight of yarn – my initial sample was in lace weight, the second in worsted weight. My testers have tried different yarn weights, and it all comes out fantastic!
I have made my versions in a color changing yarn and in different colors, to show off the construction better. It is of course possible to knit it in one color only – it will show off hand dyed or handspun yarns beautifully!
