The Perfect Wrap for Fall

  • A mosaic shawl in red, orange and green.

As we approach the holiday season, I find myself looking back at beautiful memories spent with family and friends. Sedona Sunrise is one of my favorite shawls, not simply because of its beauty, but also due to the memory it invokes everytime I see it amongst my shawls.

Several years ago, my college roommates and I took a spur of the moment trip to Sedona, Arizona to escape our busy lives for a couple of days. We stayed on a horse ranch and hiked to our hearts’ content.

This beautiful, oversized, three-color wrap reminds me of the gorgeous sunrises that awaited us every morning. The shawl is worked from the center out, and mosaic work makes the complicated easy — only one color is worked at a time! Happy knitting!

The pattern has written instructions for the garter stitch sections and has charted instructions for the mosaic sections, and there is a schematic to help guide the knitter. The pattern is available in both English and German.

If you would like help picking out colors, or have any questions at all, please reach out! I love to hear from you!

Fall can’t come soon enough!

A light-skinned woman holds up multicolored shawls.

We had a teaser of a fall day last week in Texas, but it’s supposed to be 88 degrees today, and I can’t wait for cool weather!

I don’t know about you, but I’m having a hard time getting into the fall knitting spirit, so I’ve decided to spice things up a bit with Buy One Get One FREE sale just for followers of Indie Untangled for all the patterns in my shop using coupon code WAITING4FALL through Sunday at midnight!

My shop features vibrant shawls and cowls, and I love to play with mosaic colorwork and dabble with brioche – so if you like those too, you’re in good company!

Send me a message or find me on Instagram and let me know which patterns you grab – seeing what you make is the best part about being a designer!

Mesquite and turquoise are the perfect pair in this shawl!

  • A woman holds up a gold and turquoise triangular shawl.

I had the pleasure to call San Angelo, Texas my home for about a year. This small Texas city is steeped in rich history and a surprising art scene. While living there, I fell in love with mesquite artwork inlaid with turquoise. There is something magical about this combination.

This fun triangular shawl is worked from the center out featuring short rows, wrapped stitches, and a fun mosaic colorwork motif.

Use coupon code MESQUITE to get 10% off this pattern until midnight on August 16th.

Be sure to check out the Ravelry project pages — my testers made absolutely breathtaking versions of this shawl!

Destin – A whimsical Gulf Coast-inspired shawl

  • A white and aqua crescent shaped shawl with holes.

Meet Destin, my new summer shawl pattern. Funny story: I named this shawl Destin because I was 75% sure my family was going to take our first trip after Covid to sunny Destin, Florida, and I really wanted to take pictures on the beach with this shawl….

But, then we saw hotel and AirBnB prices — I think everyone had the same plan!

We went to the Great Wolf Lodge in Grapevine, Texas instead. It was a weekend of screaming children, giant water slides, and lazy rivers. Plenty of fun, but it didn’t feel right to change the name of this lovely shawl!

So, here is to a future trip to Destin, maybe in 2022 or 2023!

This shawl is worked from the bottom up. There are two sections to this pattern, the first section consists of a bobble cast-on, and rows of eyelets and button holes — the stitch count doesn’t change in this part. Next, comes a series of short rows to create the “crescent” shape finished with a stretchy Icelandic bind-off.

In celebration of this release, use coupon code BEACH to get 15% off the pattern thru midnight on June 29th.

La Bandanita – A lightweight cowl perfect for spring!

  • A woman wears a gray and white mosaic bandana.

My 4-year-old daughter has recently fallen in love with the rodeo, especially calf roping (despite having never been on a horse — something that I need to fix!).

Growing up, horses were my passion — I would muck stalls all day if that meant I got to hang out in the stables! It’s so fun to see that reflected in her interests.

This lightweight mosaic cowl is perfect for anyone wanting to get in touch with their cowgirl, bandit, bank robber, you-name-it side!

Mosaic or slip stitch knitting makes colorwork a breeze, only one color is used at a time! This pattern comes with two options (you will get both!): a lightweight two-color fingering weight version, or a slightly warmer three-color DK-weight version.

Rose quartz, turquoise and marble galore!

  • Blue, pink, gray, brown and black stone-like stitch markers.

Stitch markers, progress keepers, row counters, and even needle reminders are live in the shop!

My 4-year-old (who is convinced she is going to be a “princess geologist” when she grows up) challenged me a couple of weeks ago to make rocks and stones out of clay – after a few false starts, I was able to come up with some really cool new designs!

Stitch markers come in sets of four and you can let me know when you order if you want any of the ring stitch markers replaced with lobster clasps to create progress keepers.

Plus, the unique row counters can count up to 100 rows! Simply use your row counter in place of a stitch marker, and move down a ring every time you start/complete a new row. You can keep track of your “10s” by moving the included progress keeper down the rings. Pretty cool, right?

Each pair is completely one of a kind and handcrafted with love (aka with copious amounts of coffee, and the occasional night cap!).

My shop also features spunky knitting patterns and fun fiber fanatic t-shirts! Stop on by and check everything out!

Spring Fever! Buy 2 patterns get 1 free using code SPRINGSALE

  • A smiling white woman holds up a black, white and pink speckled shawl.

I’ve been dreaming of warmer weather lately, and lightweight shawls are perfect to wrap around your shoulders on spring mornings with your first cup of coffee (or tea!).

Just for fun, I’m offering a “Buy 2 Get 1 Free” Spring Fever sale using coupon code “SPRINGSALE” for all patterns on my website and Ravelry until March 19th at midnight.

Who else is ready for jumping into splashpads with their little one again? I sure know I am!
