I dye pretty yarn, too!

A tale of two patterns

I have two one-skein patterns to share with you today; these would make great travel projects for summer knitting!


Haven is a simple variation on a Baktus-style shawlette or scarf (shown here in Luxe Merino Fine in the Valencia colorway). Knit end-to-end, it’s a fast one-skein knit that uses a simple cable and eyelet edging to add interest and prevent curling. The pattern also includes a two-skein version, and notes for modifying the pattern to suit whatever yardage you have on hand (great for stashbusting!).

Winding Road are cuff down socks (shown here in Smooth Merino Fine in Maureen), featuring a small Bavarian-style twisted stitch cable that wraps around the leg and foot. Heel is a modified version of a Priscilla Gibson Roberts-style short-row heel, with a four-segment star/round toe.

This pattern can be knit with your preferred sock construction method, whether it’s traditional double pointed needles, two circulars, or Magic Loop.

Both of these patterns began as special club exclusives last year for the Badass Women’s Yarn Club, Kitchen Sink Dyeworks’ & Piebird Design’s monthly club.

Each month yarn club members not only get an exlusive shipment with a beautiful skein of yarn (in varying weights and fiber contents), a Piebird Design pattern, and special gifts, but they get the added bonus of knowing they’ve helped women-run non-profits make positive change in the world. The club’s yarns are named for Badass Women working with non-profits, each month you get to meet her through interviews and a portion of each club membership is donated to her organization.
