Today I have accumulated 10000 hearts at Ravelry for my design Jordan, since the 5000 hearts milestone on . This is one of my favourite designs, and I have crocheted another Jordan in early January (with Euroflax Sport to replaced the discontinued Allegoro). Each heart means an additional special encouragement to me as I continue to design. Thank you so much to all of you for your kind support!
Just finished making the Jordan sleeveless pineapple top with Euroflax Sport in Lavender. I’m always amazed by how fast this top comes together. The Allegoro yarn used for the pattern has been discontinued for a while now, I’m happy to have found a delightful substitute for it.
Wear the Jordan top for the cold weather too, why not? 😀
Spring is in the air, it’s a good time for shawl time!
A hot pink version of the Monica shawl is a good way to bring color back to the pale winter cheeks. 😀
Monica – floral lace shawl
With a shape reminiscent of a water lily pad, Monica will stay put elegantly on the shoulders to wrap you in cozy warmth. It can also be worn around the neck as a statement scarf. The lacy pattern works up quickly from the center out, ending with an eye-catching flower border that lends a romantic flair to this gorgeous piece.
- Yarn: sport weight; 525 yd (480 m); Sugar Bush Bliss
- Hook size: US size 7 (4.5mm)
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.)
Clair – continuous motif shrug
With beautiful floral lace motifs and handsome three-quarter length sleeves, Clair is a versatile shrug that can be dressed up or down effortlessly. The structured rib-knit border and cuffs add a chic modern update to this feminine piece. The looser fit and longer back length make this shrug not only easy to wear but also great for layering. Best of all, the entire shrug is worked continuously and seamlessly, that means no sewing and weaving in ends for each individual square. Now, what’s there not to love about motifs?
- Yarn: heavy lace weight or thin light fingering; 995-1440yd (910-1317m); Pierrot Beauty Silk Cotton
- Gauge: 28 stitches = 4″ (10cm) in 2×2 Rib
- Hook size: 2mm, Needle size: US 2-1/2 (3.0mm) circular needle
- 3 sizes available: XS/S, M/L, 1X/2X
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.
