Another Jordan

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? 😀

Flower Power Tunic – July 2014 Release

Julia – floral lace tunic

Combining crochet and knitting with sophisticated dimension, Julia is effortlessly stylish and feminine. The beautiful crocheted floral lace brings eye-catching details to the yoke, sleeves and hem. Knitted top-down directly from the lace yoke in the round, the Stockinette stitch body with its gentle A-line is simple to make and flattering to wear. The unique seamless construction creates a moderate high-low hemline that further adds a chic modern twist to this exquisite piece.

Flower Power – sneak previews

Arianna – two-way floral lace cardigan

After designing Angela for my daughter, I wanted a similar cardigan (but with floral details) that is easy to throw on in a rush for the morning or going out.  Arianna sure does the job for me!
In drapey kimono style and with elbow length sleeves , Arianna is full of flower power – dainty cheery blooms brimming all over, plus a beautiful floral lace yoke on the back.
It can also be worn “upside down” (as shown in photo below on the right) with extra fabric around the neck for additional warmth and coziness.

Also, thanks to Mr Antonio Gonzalez-Arnao’s generous support, the beautiful Malabrigo Sock yarn used for this cardigan has made my project a wonderful experience.

Julia – floral lace tunic

I love the floral stitch pattern I specifically designed for Arianna so much that I have restyled it into a more open lacework for a spring/summer garment. Julia is the end result – a chic feminine A-line tunic with moderate hi-lo hem and yoke, made with breezy cool linen. I’m so ready to say goodbye to the Winter with all this blooming flower power!
