Amelie – floral cable cardigan

Decorative cables and bobbles, reminiscent of entwining vines with flowering buds, adorn the Amelie cardigan.

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.

Getting ready for spring – Short sleeve Irene

I’ve just finished my short sleeve version of Irene made with summer yarn.  The coral pink will nicely warm up any pale winter complexion.  I’m so looking forward to the spring and wearing it outside!

Iris – fern lace loop scarf

Iris came about when I wanted a simple scarf to loop twice cozily around my neck in one of my favorite colors.  To add interest, I decided to embellish the scarf with a lace border in off-white. In the end, I liked the fern lace border so much that I extended it to the remainder of the scarf but in a simpler variation. Though a tad more elaborate than originally planned, the final rendition proved to be more interesting to knit. Above all, it is as beautiful as it is fun to wear.

Iris - fern lace loop scarf

  • Size: 51″ (130cm) circumference, 8.5″ (22cm) wide

Irene – floral lace yoke cardigan

Loving the floral lace of Cynthia and Jennifer, I have carried the floral theme into Irene. To complement the beautiful floral lace yoke, a simpler lacy stripe pattern was designed for the rest of the cardigan. Irene by far might be my most favorite pattern as I am planning to make another one with summer yarn. It’ll probably be fun to wear it to the Tulip Festival this spring to see the lovely blooms.
