Opus 400.  Short summer socks designed in feather and fan stitch for self-striping yarn with stripes of up to approx 6-10 rows. There is a hidden row of eyelet holes under the rolled top edge, so you can thread through a ribbon or plied yarn if required, and tie it at the front or side. This is designed in what is believed to be the original, traditional feather and fan stitch pattern, and not one of the many variations of it. It has been charted and adapted here for in-the-round knitting. The pattern includes two separate, fully-written patterns plus charts for leg and instep for both toe-up and top-down versions. The toe-up pattern gives instructions for two-at-a-time on two circular needles, and the top-down version requires 4 dpns. The pattern also includes instructions for making a knitted spiral tie cord to complement the wavy stitch pattern.

Opus 601.  A fairly long, sideways-knitted and rolled ruffle scarf with a raggedy fringe. Note: this scarf may stretch to 72in (excl. fringe) in time, but it keeps its looks. This is a quick and simple pattern – and fully-written. The  scarf in the photo took one day to knit. (More details here)

Opus 1900.  Lined and moderately protective case for Amazon Kindle in basic Tunisian stitch (crochet). It has a full-length closing flap with loops for fastening. For the protection of the Kindle, it has been designed with no metal catch, no magnetic catch, no bulky catch, and no catch to press. It contains two pockets: one for the Kindle; one for a piece of stiffening card for minimal protection of the Kindle’s glass screen. Note: this case gives minimum protection against daily wear and tear during storage, but will not protect against e.g. being dropped or being crushed by heavy objects.

Untitled 2101.  Artwork version: recycled, crocheted, circular, cotton-shirt-yarn table mat, using wrong side as top side. This pattern uses both UK and US crochet terminology. Conventional version: the same mat will look more conventional with the right side at the top, and perhaps contrasting ribbon woven through the stitches along the outside edge (more details here).
