The way the lace crosses over each other, as if it’s woven.
The fact that it’s made on 6.5mm needles, so it’s a quick knit.
The choice of yarn is Ariana (91yds/100g), so it’s a bulky weight yarn in lightweight materials.
Ariana is a bamboo tube with light polyamide fibers inside, achieving its size without a lot of weight to stretch and drag. It’s great fun in accessories like the 2 ball Rivel Cowl (free pattern!) and in larger garments as well.
Sometimes laceweight is great, but sometimes, I want to knock out something gorgeous in a hurry. I’m keeping this pattern in mind next time I get that urge.
What a great fit for the changing of the seasons. Big and slouchy, but in the cool cotton/linen blend of Fibra Natura Good Earth (204yds/100g) so it won’t be sweltering in the Spring. I love the natural, relaxed look of this piece – so comfy with a pair of jeans.
This is a lovely piece, but not a hard one. Front and back pieces are worked from the bottom up. Stitches are cast on for sleeves and worked up in a single piece with front and back. The hems feature 2×1 knit/purl ribbing moving up into a garter stitch body. A seed stitch panel along the sides and along the outside of the arms keeps the design interesting.
This design would be as relaxing to make as to wear. It’s calming just to think about. Maybe tonight I’ll have a glass of mint tea and knit a swatch. Bliss.
Ah, summer. It hits us here in the South a little sooner than the rest of y’all. But make no mistake, it’s on its way. With that in mind, we bring you something light and airy for the move to warmer weather.
The Dockside Striped Pullover uses a basic four row stitch pattern to create a breezy fabric. It’s an easy-to-memorize fabric stitch, great for porch knitting. Our Flax 100% linen is the perfect fiber for this, becoming more relaxed and comfortable with each washing – or accidental splash by the lake.
