Loopy & Luscious tank

Thursday, November 22, 2007

Ta-da! I finished this project last evening. It was a fast and easy knit: only 2 rectangles, one with a very very loose bind off to get the scoop neck for front part. I like it a lot. The only thing that makes the difference here is working with 2 types of fiber: one very thin and the other very thick. (in my case, the thick is, in fact, a thick-thin yarn which creates lovely bumps). I used 12 mm (US 17) circular needle.

Original shawl patter here.

trying to get closer to Debbie New

I googled and browsed whatever was possible regarding Debbie New. I would love to get her book on, but it is too pricey for me. I fallen in love with her scribble lace stitch and I was lucky enough to find a scarf on with the pattern stitch: Loopy & Luscious
