Links to most of my patterns are on the blog’s Ravelry page, but here’s the list with links and pictures:-
There’s a colourful fair isle cowl here.
There’s a link to my Falling Leaves cowl pattern in this blog post.
Here’s another free cowl pattern.
And there’s a crochet version, too:-

I am always impressed by your blog and enjoy all your items and photos. Was wondering if you could give a yarn bombing tutorial for those of us who don’t already know?
The Twisted Yarn says
So so sorry for slow reply. I was mulling over your comment (for a year!) I could try this if you’re still interested? I’d have to bring in my good friend who is the secret yarn-bomber for our village. Let me ask her…
Sharyn Reed says
Out of all the stupid stuff (s**t) that comes in my email, I always read yours. I LOVE the butterfly pattern! Can you share it! I am making a Garden Gnome scene, ad think these would make a perfect addition.
The Twisted Yarn says
Thank you, you’re very kind. I’m happy to share the pattern – slight complication in that I developed it for a book I’m working on with a friend. Would it be OK if I just emailed it to you? I need to type it up first, as I’d hate to inflict my handwriting on you. I’ll try and do that within the next few days, but if I get distracted, PLEASE REMIND ME!!! And thank you for reading the blog. 🙂
Sharyn Reed says
That would be great! I am shocked and amazed that you actually read my comment. Most of the time people just fluff me off! Thank you.

You are a very talented knitter and a beautiful girl as well!
I have to congratulate you on such a beautiful colourful chair cover. I’m drooling over it with admiration. What a great talent you have.
Just came across your pattern, Falling Leaves Cowl. When going to the pattern download it appears that there are more colors than listed on the pattern. Cream (3) for the back ground and 5 (1 each) listed on the pattern, but there appears to be a 6th (gold/orange?) from looking at the chart. I am also having trouble finding accurate color representations for the colors. It appears it is a discontinued yarn? Would you mind telling me what the colors are, like cream, grey, etc., not the brand’s names. Now why would I, living in south Austin, TX, wanting to knit a wool cowl…who knows, there might be a cold day out there, or I’ll have to go to the snow. Lovely work!
Thank you for sharing the Elizabeth hat pattern…

We certainly have our share of chilly and rainy winter days here in Seattle, WA. With formal training in horticulture and a partner who is a landscape architect, you may well imagine that we are both leaf nerds.
Your Falling Leaves Cowl simply blows me away; it is gorgeous and (I think) botanically accurate—will have to check with Patient Partner for confirmation on this—thank you from the bottom of my little heart….

Hello, I know some of your work is a couple of years or so ago, but you have a gift and are truly blessed, theres a quirkiness in you I think and its charming, your pieces are stunning, Heather from western Australia.

My goodness! I never know when I wake up what sort of serendipitous joy might happen before I go back to bed! When I google Ravelry or any other (most usually) yarnie web sites, I get a feed of news and other interesting offerings. Today, I was offered an interesting look into a site I had not seen before and it was yours! Every day is a gift and every day gives a gift. Today’s gift is your blog! I’m excited to get to know you, your followers and your part of the world. I love to share all about where I live and I am interested to learn about why others love where they live.
Hand crafting has been my greatest fascination all the way back to my very beginning memories. I love colors and was so happy with my box of 64 colors of crayolas when I would go to be by myself. (I grew up with a tribe of younger brothers and sisters.). Now, finding your blog, I have both of my favorite things wrapped up in one very lovely package.
Thank you very much for doing what you do!

Man, I ❤️ your blog. You design really beautiful items and I can’t wait for your book release (saw the skirt post before this one, good luck getting it how you want ????). You’ve inspired me to try and get better at knitting. The camera strap is just begging to be made ????
Tina Fagin says
Wow! Your designs are spectacular! I’m a very new knitter, but with luck I may one day aspire to be able to make one of your patterns. Congrats on the upcoming book. I’m looking forward to seeing new designs as you post them.
Carol Erickson says
After making 3 stocking hats (beanies) , different color sets, with a pattern of autumn leaves, I’m ready to branch out & look forward to making your leaf cowl. Thank you so much for making the pattern available. I’d share pictures of the 3 hats if I could figure out how to do that to your site. Someday.

Your knitting is so beautiful. I just love it. Thank you for all you do
