Everyday Lace

I first was introduced to Heather Zoppetti the way I’m sure many knitters were — via her stunning Dahlia Cardigan in the Fall 2011 Interweave Knits. It was a garment that really made me sit up, take notice, and take immediately to the internet (via ravelry) to find out what else this designer has done. [...]

New Line/New Logo!

A little more than 2 years ago, my life changed irrevocably with the arrival of a squalling, demanding, endearing, intoxicating, impossible, wonderful creature — my daughter, Olivia. On some level, I knew that I would have to shift my life around to accommodate this new presence, but at the time, I didn’t appreciate just how [...]

Olivia Petit Redux

I’m happy that I’m finally getting around to re-visiting and releasing Olivia Petit under my own design line – Connie Chang Chinchio Designs. The release of Olivia Petit also coincides with a brand new logo for the babies and kids’ section of my design line – Piccoli Chinchio – designed by my talented brother. [...]

Two new patterns for babies & kids — MacDougal Cardigan and Roosevelt Tank

It’s been a while since I’ve released a pattern — either through traditional publishing channels or under my own indie line — so it’s with great pleasure that I’m sharing two new babies/kids’ patterns under my Connie Chang Chinchio Piccoli Tesori line. Both patterns are sized to fit ages 6 months to 6 years [...]

Contemplating Yarn

I’m already thinking of the next indie design and I’m trying to match it up with a good yarn.  First up on the table, a bevy of beauties from Sweet Georgia – light green is silk crush sock, dark green is cash silk lace, orange is tough love sock, turquoise is merino silk dk, and [...]

Ysolda thought I was being a bit stingy with the photos on the last post and suggested I post a few more; a request I’m only too happy to comply with. Again, [...]

Alexandria Considered

Alexandria’s pattern page with specs and more info.
Well, the promise to post more about Alexandria went from “later today” to “later two weeks from now”…one of the hazards of a full time job I guess (especially one that requires travel to Virginia 4 days out of the week for the foreseeable future).

Mary Jane Mucklestone!

I’ve been wanting to meet Mary Jane for a while now. I came close in June when my sister-in-law came to the US to visit us. We managed to get up to Maine, but an hour long stop in Freeport turned into 6 hours and we didn’t have enough time to make it up [...]

Alpaca Pleats Jacket – IK Winter

The Winter IK issue is out and I have a short sleeved cardigan in it, the Alpaca Pleats Jacket. Unfortunately, this is one of those projects that came down to the wire for me, so I didn’t have a chance to take any proper modeled photos. The best I did was a photo [...]

The Cayuga Set

The Cayuga Set is here.
Because not everyone likes both hats and mittens, I’ve decided to release them separately. If you’d like to purchase both patterns, I’m also offering a set option, where you can purchase the set for a 25% discount off the price of the individual patterns.
The Cayuga Set:
Yarn: Classic Elite [...]
