We made it! Tempest, our collaboration with Holli Yeoh has finally launched. After months of working late nights with a brilliant community of helpful and generous test and sample knitters, Holli and I are happy to see this book come to light. In its 84 pages, you’ll find 11 beautifully crafted patterns including garments, hats, mitts, cowls, and blankets.

Patterns included: Seaswell, a ballet-neck cardigan; Watermark, a cowl neck tunic with lace trim; Procella, a slouchy hat and fingerless mitts set; First, Second, and Third Beach Cowls, all based on variations of a Milanese lace stitch pattern; Eventide, a chevron patterned pullover; Stormwatch, a drapey and boxy-style pullover; Breakers, a cozy and chunky cowl worked in double garter stitch; Ebb & Flow, a blanket in three sizes; and Haven, a poncho or wrap that uses double-stranded cashmere fingering weight yarn to produce an ombré effect.

Here’s a quick look at the patterns in the book:

We also have a blog tour for Tempest that is about to start. Be sure to visit these fabulous blogs over the next couple weeks to win prizes! Here’s the schedule:

A learning community for Tempest

We’ve also launched a website just for Tempest at There, you’ll be able to find links to a series of online video tutorials that Holli and I put together. We put the videos together to show you some of the techniques that are used to knit the pieces in Tempest. If you’re a visual learner like I am, you’ll appreciate being able to see how Holli makes those special stitches! Here’s a sample of one of the videos:
