Helpful Tips


Level: Advanced beginner/intermediate. 

Yarn Req: 3 skeins of fingering weight yarn, 100g each. 

This pattern is captivating and really fun to work on. For those who are curious about a bit of lace work, this is a great option to join in on. 
The instructions are super clear and well written. 
The colours really suture together, with lots of sections, and make a gorgeous, long trapezoid scarf. 

Zadie Jumpsuit 

Level: Advanced beginner/intermediate 

Fabric Req: Woven fabrics, yardage based on size 

This pattern is a great staple in the summer wardrobe! 

The instructions are very clear, and this jumpsuit comes together beautifully. 


Sophie Scarf 

Level: advanced beginner 

Yarn Req: 20g (small) or 30g (large) of DK weight yarn 

This fun and trending little scarf is a great addition to the wardrobe. 

This is knit with increases to the centre, and then decreases down the second half. This structure gives a little bit of room to play for yarn recommendations and sizing! Want a slightly larger scarf? Knit to half your ball with the increase side, and then start the decreases!  

Talam Jumpsuit 

Level: Advanced beginner 

We loved the design of this romper with the cross front, and tapered leg. It also has pockets! 

Sophie Shawl 

Level: Advanced beginner 

Yarn Req: 100, 150, 0r 200g of worsted weight yarn 

Similar to the Sophie Scarf, this knit is constructed tip to top with increases on one side, and decreases along the other. This allows some play with the weights of yarn that are used – you really can use just about anything for this project, match your needles used to the drape you would like to achieve.  

We LOVE the poema options for this – at 150g of fingering weight yarn, you would knit to halfway through the ball (75g) and then begin the decrease half of the shawl! This will show the gorgeous gradient of the yarn. 

Sunday Romper 

Whirlpool Shawl 

Harlow Romper

Peachy Geometric 

Cozy Kid Coverall 

level: Advanced beginner 

Fabric: knits. This can be made in soft jersey, OR bamboo fleece for a fuzzy and cozy playsuit. This is a long standing favourite at the ML studio. The instructions are great.

Melanie’s Poema Sophie Shawl

Melanie followed the Sophie Scarf pattern for the tails of this shawl, and the Sophie Shawl pattern for the centre. You could easily follow just the shawl pattern to complete this look. She knit to halfway (75g) of the ball of poema, and then began the decrease portion of the pattern. 

Mels Hot Tip: Use a stitch marker to mark your increase row, and count garter rows from there to decrease your row counting on this knit! 

Christine’s Whirlpool Shawl

  • Made with Poema Tweed 
  • Tunusian crochet 

Take this opportunity to be the push you need to learn tunusian crochet! This was Christine’s first tunusian crochet project and it was so fun! 

Gina’s Elliott Romper

  • Hemp Jersey
