sport/dk weight tee w/ a custom fit bicep

Rift cracks open all your assumptions about what a “basic tee” pattern should be. This lightweight, bottom-up knit includes instructions for two necklines, optional bust darts, and a custom fit bicep. The design features a slightly cropped body and a split high-low hem in twisted rib, giving it enough detailing to be interesting while maintaining a timeless simplicity.



Sprouted Shawl

Released May 2019


merino/mohair shawl in 4 sizes

Sprouted is a design that celebrates new beginnings and the beauty of the growth they usher in — in life, in art, in expression, in self-knowledge and self-love. This crescent shawl begins from the center top with ever-growing rows of stockinette in a loose gauge, giving it more delicacy and drape than most garter stitch shawls. The original lace design along the border is inspired by growth in nature, evoking sprintime leaves and buds. The pattern includes instruction for 4 sizes, so you can size according to your preference (or your stash!).



Ursa Sweater

Released March 2019



Ursa is a bear of a sweater — chunky, bold, snuggly, fierce. With simple construction and interesting detailing, this cropped bulky weight pullover is a quick and enjoyable knit. The sweater is constructed from the top-down with raglan shaping for the sleeves and optional horizontal bust darts in 3 cup sizes. The pattern includes directions to try it on as you work and notations to help you tweak the size (including the length, if cropped isn’t your thing!) according to your preference. Also included in the pattern are links to custom video tutorials that will walk you through the techniques for half brioche stitch and German short rows.



Ursa Minor sweater

Released March 2019


A beginner bulky weight sweater

Ursa Minor is the little sister to Ursa. Featuring the same top-down raglan construction, this simplified version eliminates the half-brioche stitch detailing and adds broken rib to the faux seams and bottom hem. While the half-brioche stitch elevates Ursa to an intermediate knit, Ursa Minor was designed to be a go-to first sweater pattern for beginning knitters.
