Mystery solved...

It is said that good things come to those who wait... and so it was in this case!!!

After a couple of year of pondering, I picked up my needles and finally worked out a system for doing my Geometric Openwork... Happy day!!

The circuitous thinking of Mr. Holmes is depicted in the Sherlock Scarf shown below. It is the first pattern being published using the Geometric Openwork technique and I find it serendipitous that it should be featured in conjunction with a Sherlock theme!

The yarn used is Masham Worsted from Lorna's Laces and the yarn and pattern can be purchased as a kit from Jimmy Bean's Wool. There are also some photos in the pattern to help the knitter understand how to work the technique. 



More patterns using the Geometric Openwork technique will be added as soon as I get the patterns ready!!

Happy knitting!!! :-)



  • I am anxious to email you, PLEASE DO NOT DISCONTINUE ARAN TOSCANA – I have purchased some Dk yarn and it is absolutely beautiful, washed it SUCCESSFULLY. SOFT too. Larger needles can be used will try 5 or 5.5mm I wrapped it up tightly and washed at 40 degrees then laid it on top of the fire on pilot, simply smoothed it out a few times with my fingers. It was the same width but cannot be certain about the precise length as typically I am pressured on time. This is the best yarn I have ever used. ARAN or thicker yarn as it means less hand strain. SOS I live in central England and will be setting up shop etc in due course. Creative Carol CC UK

  • I am working on the Chutes & Ladders Scarf and am excited! However, I am wondering if there are any updates to the pattern? For some reason I am finding the pattern a bit tricky.

  • So pretty. Looking forward to more models in that technique. Where can it be purchased in EU?
