A versatile layering piece, Patricia is packed with beautiful details: eye-catching lace leaves gracing the three-quarter sleeves; delicate sprinkling of pretty eyelets; and a crochet lace border providing an extra touch of femininity. The shrug is constructed in two separate halves, each knitted sideways from cuff to center back. The two halves are joined together using three-needle bind off. Pattern also includes instructions for a textured rib border as a knit option.
Decorative cables and bobbles, reminiscent of entwining vines with flowering buds, adorn the Amelie cardigan. The cabling of the fronts continues up to embellish the hood, while that of the back climbs up the left to lend an asymmetrical twist. Knitted with a wonderfully soft and light Aran weight yarn, the generously sized cardigan is delightfully comfortable to wear. The body and sleeves of Amelie are worked flat in separate pieces from the bottom up, making the cabling and compound raglan simple to track.
Perfect for home or venturing out, Madeline makes a versatile layering piece that is effortlessly chic and stylish. The eye-catching lace border dresses up the simple stockinette and keeps the oversized shrug interesting to knit and beautiful to wear. The entire cardigan is worked seamlessly, and is equally exquisite with or without the sleeves.
Featuring delicate lacy shells and romantic scalloped edgings, Ava is elegantly feminine and stylishly beautiful. With its gentle A-line silhouette and handsome three-quarter length flared sleeves, Ava is a polished pick for dressing up or down. The open-front cardigan is constructed seamlessly from the top down, enabling you to adjust the length of both the sleeves and the body as desired.
It seems like a long time ago when Clair was released. I have done lots of bad stuff (mouwahaha) with this latest project of mine – frogging many times and taking lots of breaks.
Does the stitch pattern look familiar to you? It is based on the lacy shells of Ada that I really like. I definitely love the purple with the lace. I hope you like it too. (Please visit again for more details when the pattern is released in this fall.)
Thanks to Tracy for sending me the photos of this beautiful Gina cardigan she made. It is size 3Y, and being showcased as a shop model for “Stitch”, a lovely store located in the East Village, Des Moines, Iowa. Don’t you love the color and the whole ensemble? It’s so fresh and beautiful! I think Lilo & Stitch will agree.

Ever since I had weaved in hundred of ends for 2 motif projects, I was rather discouraged to start another project of this type. However, after coming across this inspiring Japanese book “Continuous Crochet Motif” by Nihon Vogue Sha, I know I would design a piece with continuous floral motifs.
And this is it! The entire shrug is continuous and seamless! I have absolutely conquered my motif-phobia.
