Pattern Collections

Mindfully Made Knitted Projects for you to create.

My designs are aimed at offering others an opportunity to bring 'mindfulness' into their own lives and into the world in which we live.

Slow stitching.

Conscious creations.

Intuitive knitting.

I convey my non-traditional methods, which I have developed over decades, in clear, easy-to-follow patterns so that you can create deeply expressive pieces, intuitive pieces of fibre art.

Mindfully paying tribute to Canadian culture, heritage & history while still being practical for everyday use.

 

Take a journey into Canada's rich history and culture! This collection of keepsake baby patterns honours each province and territory of my beautiful home, Canada.  Each project features that province's or territory's symbolic animal in a fun and unique way.   

 

Currently, Aruna has released her first pattern in this series honouring her home province of British Columbia.  This pattern features the Kermode Bear. Also known as the Spirit Bear. Her hope is to collaborate with various conservation organizations to help preserve these rare and beautiful animals. True to her attention to detail, each pattern comes with a coordinating gifting postcard which Aruna painted herself.

Mindfully allow your inner maker to 'PLAY' by using basic squares as a blank canvas to create the unusual.  Learn to combine tactile elements with novel maker techniques, such as origami, to go beyond the 'expected' and the 'traditional'. 

 

Because all the projects in this series use a simple square shape as a base, these patterns are excellent tools for practising 'letting go' and refining your reliance on intuition.  

 

They are also a fantastic route for new knitters to learn several skills.  This learning series will guide you through learning to knit 5 different projects sequentially, each level building upon the previous. Starting off with knitted stuffed owls, then moving onto origami stars and other fun projects, until you reach the final level of knitting a sweater -- all with basic squares!  No need to fuss over increases, decreases or yarn overs -- just pure knitting bliss.

A mindfully nostalgic nod to yesteryear.  A fabulous infusion of vintage modern.  This is a playful, heritage style baby sweater for your little pumpkin.  Through this pattern, you will learn how to incorporate a lot of 'maker'-touches to your knitted pieces, such as embroidery, adding haberdashery, a banner-style edging and more!
