Floral Cable Cardigan – October 2017 Release

Amelie – floral cable cardigan

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.

I love purple – sneak preview of new design

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.)

Gina & Stitch, not Lilo & Stitch

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.

I love continuous motifs – sneak preview of new design

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.
