Following are some of the lovely comments I have received from knitters about my designs. A source for continued inspiration, that’s for sure.

Heirloom Cultivar Shawl

Gorgeous design and very clear, well-written instructions. There are both line-by-line written instructions and charts. As an nice added extra the pattern contains a stitch count for each row. The Intermediate rating appears appropriate for the design. I can’t wait to start knitting this. Thank you!

Spring Runoff Scarf

Easy to follow directions although I read them a number of times to get a good understanding of the pattern. The scarf has a lovely flow to it. Next time l will do it in a variegated yarn.

Very detailed. My first cable knitting project and seems quite daunting but only because I’m new to cabling. Very clear steps and nice diagrams.

Loganberry Cowl

I made this hat for my daughter. She’s thrilled with it says it’s best hat I’ve made this year and I make a lot! An intricate pattern but easy to follow with clear instructions. I’m now making another one.

Frostbitten Beret

Back Roads Mitts

I love this pattern! I’ve downloaded about 5 patterns (other shops/fingerless gloves) and this is my favorite. It’s easy to follow, although when I first printed off, I thought…”wow, hope I can make this.” Best thumb gusset instructions of any pattern I have so far and love the cast off instructions. Looking forward to other patterns from Apiary Knits.
