Viking Head Mittens!

Friend of The Only Stitch Carolyn Cagle is at it again with her awesome custom crafted mittens!

Her company, Strikke Knits, specializes in these incredibly well-crafted, bespoke fleece mittens and she chose our own Chain-Stitch Viking Face design to grace this excellent pair.

We can’t thank Carolyn enough, but we can ask you to go check out her fantastic work at Strikke Knits!

Dogwood Flower – a Repeat Hit!

Our good friend Carolyn Cagle is at it again, proving her versatility as well of that of the Dogwood Flower machine embroidery design!

First, Carolyn used it to create this wonderful tablet cover that landed her in the hallowed pages of Stitches Magazine!


Then, with her Thriftshop Thursday post, Carolyn took it to the next level, incorporating shining yarn and multiple. Layered and scaled instances of the Dogwood Flower to create a fashion forward treatment!


If you want to make your own Dogwood creation, 3$ will find you with the design you need! Carolyn’s creativity, however, is priceless!

Peacock Feather in the Wild!

I love the awesome repurposing of thrift-store goods and the vibrant color scheme used by TOS’s very good friend Carolyn Cagle in her latest project. These wonderful mittens and matching hat feature my very own Peacock Feather!

The peacock feather really shines on these wonderful mittens and matching hat from Carolyn Cagle's Strikke Knits!
