New Pattern and Knit Along

Level was just published in Brooklyn Tweed Wool People 11. It’s my first pattern with Brooklyn Tweed and I am very excited about it. Level is a modular garter stitch shawl in three colors of fingering yarn. The shawls pictured were knit in Brooklyn Tweed Loft. There is a KAL for Level starting July 1. If you would like to join us, please post into the KAL thread here.

Patternfish newsletter

 included four of my designs in their latest newsletter. It’s always exciting when this happens. Here is what was included in the newsletter:

Nancy Whitman creates lovely patterns such as Minoan, an easy-to-knit shawl with intricate looking colour work. Minoan is also available as a knitCompanion bundle.

Her Rushmore Hat and Cowl Set have a unique texture created with staggered pleating for a very pleasing and eye-catching effect.

  • Minoan
  • Rushmore Hat & Cowl Set

One of Whitman’s unique contributions to the world of knitting patterns are her colourful mitered shawls, such as Piet on Point, inspired by the paintings of Piet Mondrian, and the bold, asymmetrical A New Slant.

  • Piet on Point
  • A New Slant

You can find my designs on Patternfish, Ravelry, etsy, and Craftsy, just to name a few places.

Pattern Sale, Mystery KAL, and Indie Design GAL

Do you need a quick gift? Do you have 140 yards of heavy worsted or Aran weight yarn? Do you enjoy a good mystery? Extra Extra 3-Hour Cowl may be the pattern for you. It’s knit in the round in four easy stitch patterns: decorative rib, eyelet increase, chevron, and garter stitch. You can use any circular knitting method you prefer. The pattern is both written out and charted. This is such a quick knit, that the three clues will be released every other day starting on December 1. The pattern is 20% off until then, but once the first clue goes out, the pattern is full price. Give me 3 hours, and you can tick another gift off your list, or keep it for yourself!
