Usage of soft contrasting colors and variation in the fern lace stitches set off the eye-catching lace border beautifully. This pattern is equally lovely with single color or tonal yarn. Knitted in the round, the scarf can be easily adjusted in circumference and width to suit your needs.

Continuous Motif Shrug – June 2015 Release

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?

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.
