Meet Isabella

My website offers over a thousand knit & crochet patterns for varies garments and accessories designed by many of the most talented knitwear designers in the fiber arts community. I've teamed up with some of these knitwear artists to create a line of patterns exclusive to Sandrasingh.com and I'm proud to introduce the "Sandrasingh.com Exclusive Collection." The first pattern in this series is ready...

Meet Isabella

This very special Hat, Scarf & Mittens set, Isabella, was designed by Kirsten Kapur of “Through The Loops Designs” exclusively for Sandrasingh.com and is worked in Malabrigo’s soft, 100% merino wool yarn Merino Worsted.

Isabella features an easy to knit, yet sophisticated stitch design that suits a wide variety of personal tastes and styles. By changing the color scheme the set, or individual pieces, will look great with many different types of outerwear and work for children, teens and adults.

Its knit in a simple pattern with a stunning result. The color work at the borders of each piece is deceptively simple, there is no carrying two colors in the same row. The stitch pattern is created by slipping stitches and then knitting the carries together a few rows later, even the more complex looking body of each piece is worked this way. There is no cabling involved, the intricate looking pattern work is really just slipped stitches!
