I’ve moved!

Please come visit my new virtual home at



The photos below are linked to the patterns on Ravelry
(you do not need to be a member to access the patterns)

These patterns all feature the new Åsa Tricosa Ziggurat Tricnique, a top-down seamless method (inspired by the Tailored Sweater Method) – tailored shoulders, rounded neckline, seamless with set-in sleeves that are also knitted top-down in the round. 

This is technique I’ve been a bit obsessed with over the past year – and I still keep casting on new projects with it. It’s a bit like magic…

Each pattern has a photo tutorial explaining the technique step by step. Once you get the hang of it, you can use it in and for any design or pattern of your choice. Or make your own adaptations and modifications.

The striped cardigans and sweaters have been worked out precisely – that is, where to turn, when and why, in order to have the very fewest ends to weave in possible – and no finishing except perhaps a rolled neck or so added last. Naturally, you could work out your own striping based on just the basic Simple Ziggurat pattern and then cut, join and snip yarn and colours as you please!
