A Visual Pattern Preview and Giveaway
March 03, 2015
Hillside Blooms is knit up in a stunningly beautiful hand-dyed yarn. The perfect balance of lace and texture, along with gentle curving lines, really brings this design together. Stay tuned for this shawlette knitting pattern (which I LOVE to wear as a scarf)! (NOW Available - the #210 Hillside Blooms Shawlette)
the image above.
the above image.
A bold heart is the centerpiece of this quick knit! A departure from my usual designs, but this one was so fun and quick (took me just over an hour to knit one hat!) AND I learned a fabulous technique for working Intarsia in the round that was so easy! PLUS, I made this matched set (one for DH) with just 1 skein of each color. Woohoo! [NOTE - This pattern has been released: #209 Big-Hearted Hat]
the hat image above.
There are some lace patterns that practically beg to be worked up in a delicate mohair silk. This was definitely one of them. The result is a very feminine, flowy scarf that is super budget-friendly and a great travel project! I'm almost finished knitting this one-ball scarf and will begin writing it up very soon! (NOW available - the #211 Chalice One-Ball Scarf)
the above scarf.

Definitely Hillside Blooms! Living in Southern Arizona, it is the perfect size to wear over my shoulders first thing in the morning, and then switch to a scarf-style as the day warms up. And back to a shawl when the A/C is blowing too much.
Posted by: Cathy Lemak | March 04, 2015 at 06:01 AM
Hillside Blooms. So pretty.
