Kathleen Sperling


Kathleen Sperling learned to knit when she was seven or eight years old. She became seriously obsessed with it in adulthood when she started making baby knits for friends who were expecting. Then she discovered that she loved designing. Knitting inspires her with ideas for patterns of all kinds: simple and complex, funny and serious, and for people of all ages and flavours.

December Dreaming Stocking

Santa will love stuffing gifts into this ornate stocking! Featuring a multitude of colorwork techniques including stranded knitting, intarsia and even a little bit of duplicate stitch — this project is bound to hold your interest. This stocking also uses the unique “hat heel” construction, which means you start the stocking at the heel rather than working from cuff to the toe. With delicate snowflakes and whimsical trees, this project will make Christmas morning fun for years to come!

Hangin’ Round Blanket

This blanket is a mix of intricate Arabic and Indian motifs. The bobble-and-lace motif is taken from Indian henna art and the stranded motif from wrought-iron balconies in Lebanon. The result is a beautiful and elegant circular blanket, enough to give a baby warmth, but not too heavy or toasty.
