It’s shawl time!

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. ūüėÄ

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 Рfrogging 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.)

Continuous Motif Shrug – June 2015 Release

Clair Рcontinuous 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?

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.

Featuring an eye-catching floral lace pattern for the neck yoke and the hem, this lovely feminine top is worked seamlessly from the neck down. In a simple yet complementary stripe pattern, the body with its gentle waist and hip shaping further defines a figure flattering fit.
