Elegant lace, mixed textures, eye-catching silhouettes, & then some! Here are THREE upcoming patterns for you to preview and then ENTER to win a copy!
Here's a sneak peek at two upcoming patterns that are just off my needles. Guess I was in a beige/camel color mood!
Up first is my new love. It's a cocoon-style cardigan featuring a gorgeous open lace panel in the back. Ribbed dolman sleeves provide a tailored contrast. Then, a striking banana leaf panel is featured in both the shaped shawl collar and optional sleeve cuffs.
This is a special, elegant piece that is wonderful to knit and very striking to wear.
Below, is a little cardigan with a pretty diamond lace pattern stitch. The wide back panel is then divided in half as front panels. A slimming fit allows this to work beautifully with summer dresses and tops, or at work, under a suit jacket.
Plus, it's a seamless, top-down design, so the sleeve length is easily asjusted.
And lastly, is a new blanket design with lovely texture! [NOW Available for Purchase]
This pattern includes 4 sizes, from the Baby Blanket size (shown here) to a Throw size.
What's special about this blanket is the cool combination of Cables and Lace. This stitch pattern is a unique combination of cabling that makes it look like the cables are floating and traveling on top of the lace panels. I call it the #189 Travelling Cables Blanket.
