Charmed is a top-down triangle with extra edge increases on the wrong side to give just a bit of a crescent shape. The body is a textured eyelet stitch and the edging features beads framed by two horizontal braids and a wide ribbed ruffle.

Skills required: increasing, slipping stitches, beading, horizontal braid

Finished measurements: approximately 157.5 cm wide and 53.5 cm deep after blocking

Gauge: 24 stitches to 10 cm of lightly blocked stockinette stitch. Gauge is not critical but will affect the finished size and the meterage required

Note: Though conversions to the metric system have been made on this page for your convenience, the pattern itself uses American measurements.

If ‘knitting designer’ had been one of the job choices for those aptitude tests they give you in high school, I wouldn’t have spent so many years trying to decide what I wanted to be when I grew up. My best subject in high school was math; my best classes in college were logic, drawing, and a commercial art class. After careers in computer programming/analysis and child-rearing, knit design snuck up on me, but I think it’s the perfect use of my odd skill set! I love every step of the process, from figuring out how to actually make what I’ve envisioned to putting the finishing touches on a pattern, not to mention all the knitting that comes in between!

I also love reading and hiking and spending time on Brier Island in Nova Scotia every summer.
