The vote this time is between three early spring designs, two open-knit sweaters and a skirt. continue reading
This time around the vote is between a wrap, a dress and a cardigan. Votefor the one you’d most like to knit (or that you’d like to knit first!).
The cocoon wrap starts out as a big rectangle but then you fold it and continue knitting to create armholes and a wide ribbed collar. What results is a cozy, versatile wrap. Worn one way, the fronts are shorter; worn upside down, the fronts become longer. Sample is knit in Elsbeth Lavold Silky Flamme, the gauge would also work for Malbrigo Twist or Blue Sky Alpacas Brushed Suri.
This is a top-down, A-line garment made with English tailored shoulders and set-in sleeves. You can easily customize the length of both the dress and the sleeves. A very basic, flattering shape that begs to be knit up with an interesting dk weight yarn. Samples knitted in Habu wool with stainless steel or Green Mountain Spinnery Cotton Comfort.
Stella is a basic scoop neck cardigan knitted seamlessly. The bottom is knit with two strands of Habu’s stainless held together, the top is one strand stainless with one strand cotton gima. The fun part of the stainless is that you can manipulate the fabric but the pattern would translate perfectly to other sport or dk weight yarns.
