Astoria Pattern


When I finished knitting Astoria, late last year, and decided I'd write a pattern, I thought it'd be a piece of cake. Well, after 4 months, innumerable hours and much conversing with my tech editor and beta reviewers, I think I've come up with a pattern I feel comfortable selling.

This 7 page pattern, filled with diagrams, charts, and tons of modification suggestions, comes with 10 sizes from 31"/79cm – 58"/147cm.

Additionally, you can download an Excel document, for free, with the motif, set up so that you can play around with different color combinations.

The pattern is available for download for $9.99. You can check out all the supplies, sizes and other specifications for this pattern here.

Thanks to everyone who expressed interest in the pattern. I hope that people will enjoy knitting this piece.


I'll remember that for some day when my skills are a tad farther along than they are. It's just beautiful!

Thanks for the heads up! Fixed.

When you said you were ready you weren't kidding! It's awesome, and I can attest to the fact that it is worth every penny. This is an extremely well thought out pattern. Congrats!

I love how the cover page looks....congratulations on getting it out there!

It looks great! I love your work! Such inspiration. Keep up the awesome work. I was wondering if you are the same Marnie that made the Orange Shawl that was featured in this Spring's Spin-off issue. If so I love it and it was the inspiration that I needed to nudge me off the edge into spinning bliss. I promptly went out and bought a spindle and some pretty roving to practice on. :) I posted a pic on my blog, check it out! It's not lace weight but it's not bad for a first time!

Astoria is beautiful! And what a lovely model you are on the front page! Thanks for keeping people of all sizes in mind as you put this pattern together.

Wow, what a beautiful sweater. I might have to learn how to do stranded colourwork! :) Nice range of sizes too; thanks for that!!

Thanks so much for all of your hard work to make the pattern available! I am so excited to be able to make my own Astoria! I have been admiring this sweater since you first posted pictures!

Wow, my skillset isn't there yet, but I do love this sweater. It accentuates the positive without shouting, if you get my drift. I need to do some colorwork elsewhere before I tackle a sweater with it, though.

Yay, I love this sweater! I'm sure I'm not the only one who appreciates all the work you put into getting this pattern out. :)

What fun... I grew up in Astoria and am a life long Oregonian. I might just have to buy this one:)

Absolutely stunning! And all those extras are why you are one of my favorite designers. Being able to chart your colors is so cool! :)
