The Rise Up 2021 Collection

Happy New Year!!

I’m super-excited to be part of a wonderful collaboration of seven designers.  The Rise Up 2021 Collection is a collection of seven patterns, with release dates of January 5, 12, 19, 26, and February 2, 2021.  We started with a concept, a set of colors, and a group of stitch patterns.  It was great fun to see how we each interpreted the same inspiration.  The photo above is Alcyone by Christine Guest Designs.

Individual patterns may be purchased from the independent designers on February 15, 2021.

On January 5 the entire collection is $15. The price increases as patterns are added, ending with a selling price of $28.  No matter when you purchase the collection, you will own the whole thing as each new pattern is added.  The Rise Up 2021 Collection is available on Ravelry and Payhip.

My pattern, Garden Cowl, is a big, bold, bright and colorful colorwork cowl, worked in the round in worsted weight yarn.  It very easily can be a stash buster, or mostly a stash buster, as 4 of the 6 colors require only about 75 yards of yarn.  The picture below is a sneak peek of the cowl worn doubled.  I’m so very happy with this design.  It’s fun to make and fun to wear.  I will be able to show you the whole design in a few weeks…


Enjoy this great collection of patterns!  What a fun way to usher in 2021!




In this blog, you will find not only an exploration of all that is good in our knitterly lives, but also a variety of posts tying together my passions for writing, photography, and my home state of Oregon.
