This book is coming out in just a few days, and I am super-excited about it. The best thing about having a new book out is seeing all the projects that you the readers end up creating using these designs. And I hope you will post them to Ravelry here. I will add sneak peeks from the book to my blog on a regular basis.
Today’s sneak peeks are two completely new designs:
Designed to wrap around and around, the Wrapped Scarf on page 107 has an interesting construction. You build the width with short rows at the edges, right at the beginning, to make it wider and shallower than a standard top-down scarf. Then a lovely lace pattern enhances the shape.
This top-down design uses 2 skeins of Ensemble 4, starting with color H13 and ending with color H23 at the bottom.
Thinking of making another one in these two colors of Ensemble 4: H24 and H31.
This easy yet versatile Beaded Eyelet Hug designed by the talented Nell Ziroli on page 75 is knit in the round from the top down with a luscious yarn and is highlighted by beads and sequins The increased shaping is hidden in the eyelet design.
Shown in Rhapsody Light color H2 and Beaded Pearl and Sequins color H2 Gold, 1 skein each.
Thinking of making the hug in these 2 skeins:
Rhapsody Glitter Light and Beaded Pearl & Sequins in H18 Silver. Yummy.
