Original Knitting Patterns by Jessie McKitrick


Firth Waves Cushion

The Firth Waves Cushion is knit in the round, forming a tube that is then seamed closed at bottom and top edges over a pillow form. The word "firth" is Scots for an inlet or bay, and having enjoyed the beautiful Firth of Forth on a trip to Edinburgh, that seemed like the right choice for this cozy, wavy cushion.

Nor Good Red Herring
Nor Good Red Herring was inspired by a herringbone pattern from a Dutch fishing gansey, but has here been transposed onto a circular yoke more in keeping with an Icelandic-style sweater, and worked in a luxurious English-spun merino yarn—making it neither fish, nor fowl, nor good red herring. The herringbone pattern runs around the yoke, up the sides and mirrored on the sleeves. Knit seamlessly from the bottom up with sleeves and body knit separately to the underarms and joined to finish with underarms being grafted.

Sizing: Women’s XS (S, M, L, XL, 2X, 3X) 
To fit bust sizes: 71 (81, 91.5, 101.5, 112, 121, 132)cm, 28 (32, 36, 40, 44, 48, 52) inches, worn with minimal ease.

Running Tide Cowl
The Running Tide Cowl is a cozy cowl featuring a reversible cable pattern. Beginning with a provisional cast-on, it is knit flat, then joined by grafting the final row to the first row. Once joined, the cowl is long enough to pass twice around the neck. Quick to knit, and a comfort to wear, can easily be modified to a shorter or longer cowl, or indeed, to a scarf.

This pattern is available for C$6.75 CAD


Frobisher
This jumper is knitted flat in pieces from the bottom up and seamed for a well-structured and comfortable fit. 

The Frobisher Pullover is a cabled saddle-shoulder pullover that was originally designed for Issue #53 of Knit Now Magazine. Frobisher, like its namesake Canadian rose and the explorer for whom the rose was named, is hardy enough for cold climates. Even if you’re not seeking the Northwest Passage, it will keep you warm for your own explorations of woodlands and hillsides over crisp, autumn leaves.

Sizing: Women's [Men's] XS (S, M[S], L[M], XL[L], 2X[XL], 3X[2X]) to fit bust 86 (96, 106.5, 117, 123, 132, 142) cm [34, 38, 42, 46, 48.5, 52, 56)"]  with 5cm [2"] positive ease

Zephirine Tunic
This Tunic-length pullover, which is long enough that it can be worn as a dress, was originally designed for Issue #50 of Knit Now Magazine. Worked flat in pieces from the bottom up, then seamed, the Zephirine Tunic features a square neck at the front and a V at the back. The adorable sleeves are open at the shoulder and fastened with buttons.

Sizing: Women's XS (S, M, L, XL, 2X, 3X) to fit bust 86 (96, 106.5, 117, 123, 132, 142) cm [28 (32.5, 36, 40.5, 44, 48.5, 52)"], worn with minimal to no ease

Irish Cowboy

A neck-warmer featuring a cable-and-bobble pattern on a background of reverse stockinette and moss stitch, bordered by twist cables. It is knit flat, then joined by seaming the cast-off end to the side adjacent to the cast-on end. This creates a shape that effectively keeps the neck warm while wearing a v-necked jacket. The cable trim is extended on one side and seamed to the cast-on edge to complete the finish.

Ruched Legwarmers
Ruched Legwarmers are a pair of legwarmers that evoke the cozy rusticity of sturdy wool blankets and boot socks, but provide the warmth and luxurious feel of cashmere with Knit Picks Capra.

Myshka
Myshka, being Ukrainian for ‘little mouse’ seemed to suit this sweet little tuque just right. Myshka is knit from the bottom up, starting in back-and-forth rows with a half-linen stitch, then joined in the round and knit in stockinette for the remainder. A button finishes it off quite nicely. Myshka is sized from baby through to older children
