Hi all. I hope this new week is starting out great for you. Sorry it took me so long to get this pattern published, but it’s ready for your knitting pleasure now!
This pattern is the first for Patsy and Ann Estelle. It is a light weight cropped cardigan knit with lace yarn. I used Knit Picks Aloft, a mohair/silk blend. The stitches are tiny, but the fuzziness of the yarn hides stitch imperfections. I actually enjoy knitting with lace yarn over heavier yarn. It creates less hand strain because it is so light weight, but yes, it is harder to see.
Hello everyone! I had a busy day yesterday. Patsy’s new ensemble got finished, photographed, and (almost) ready to make its debut tonight! Yay!
And, it’s PINK!
Yes, more “creating with pink” is coming from my studio. This time my pink creation is for Patsy and Ann Estelle, lucky girls.
Patsy is wearing a dress with rosy colored roses scattered on a warm white ground. Her “light as a feather” cardigan is knit with pink lace weight mohair/silk yarn. A pair of mirrored image embroidered rose motifs pick up the deep rosy color in the dress. Ribbon, pearls, and English cotton Cluny lace further embellish this new ensemble.
“Blossoms for my Love-ly” will be available tonight (January 19, 2017) at 7:00 pm CST, cindyricedesigns.com.
Have, or hope you are having, a great day everyone! ❤
