sabinette tank

Wednesday, October 31, 2007

This is my own pattern, inspired from Sabinette scarf, a Norah Gaughan design found on berroco's site. After I finished the front panel, I picked up stitches along one side and continued to work horizontally. I worked 5 edge (both edges) stitches in garter stitch. The middle of back has 5 rows of eyelet (yo, p2tog on WS) to avoid shrinkage.

Look what my dear hubby brought to me: a model form to help with my knitwear design.

Vogue Knitting on the go! Crocheted Scarves
Book Review

This book is small as a size only, because its content is very rich: 25 crochet patterns for scarves, shawls, wraps and stoles. The projects range from beginner to experienced skill level. I was pleasantly surprised to see among the designers famous names: Norah Gaughan (there are 2 designs of her), Teva Durham with a very intriguing free form scarf, Mari Lynn Patrick, Sasha Kagan, Katherine Fedewa. Definitely there is something for everybody and this book in very inspiring too: nice color combinations, nice stitches which can be used in other projects too, nice yarns combination.
