I am so very happy to release my newest design: Pellucid!
A simple, yet elegant top, worked with a large amount of positive ease. The yarn, worked at a large gauge, creates a drapey fabric perfect for chilly summer days and early autumn.
This top came into being in a collaboration with Fyberspates, dyer of some of the most luxurious yarns I know. Using Gleem Lace in alternatingly 1 and 2 strands, subtle striping is created – in this case, perfect for muting down the busyness of the hand dyed yarn, while showcasing the hand dyed qualities at the same time.
See more details on the Ravelry pattern page, where you can also buy the pattern!
Have you seen my newest pattern – Brighton Beach?
I submitted this design to the design competition for Unwind Brighton – sadly I didn’t win, but that just means I could publish it myself! ;)
Knitted in one single skein of Walkcollection Luxe Fingering, this shawlette is a fun knit – you start by casting on all the stitches needed for the width, and then you decrease on every row until you reach the center point. The rows keep getting shorter, and the foamy/scallopy lace pattern along the edge keeps it interesting.
Isn’t this perfect for a quick summer knit?
The pattern will be sold in kits (yarn + pattern) from Walkcollection at Unwind Brighton on July 12-13, where you will be able to get your hands on a hard copy. I’m ridiculously excited about those hard copies, it’s the first time I had a pattern printed!
If you can’t make it to Unwind, or you’d like to get your hands on the pattern before then, you can buy it on Ravelry here.
Also, there is a knitalong in the Knitter’s Kitchen | DVM designs group on Ravelry. Come join, and win a prize!
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!
See the Ravelry pattern page for Starbuck here, or
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!
For more information, check out my personal blog, or the Ravelry pattern page, where the pattern is for sale.
