I am so terribly behind … Never showed my latest ! patterns.
Embossed alu is a pullover with a large boatneck and some positive ease but with fitted sleeves. It has a lace mesh pattern on the sleeves and peplum.
That mesh pattern is a happy mistake. I found a pattern in an old knitting book. It had no picture and I was trying to work it in the round.
I have to admit that I definitely can’t make the difference between wrong from right side or knit and purl, haha … 🤣
This ‘wrong’ mesh stitch reminds me a lot of the embossed plates used in scale models. Combined with the name of the yarn I used : Wollmeise Twin, colorway 13 Al, it gave me the name of the pattern: embossed alu.
It is worked top down and seamlessly in the round. The neck and sleeves are finished with a special edging… a very small folded hem, but there is no sewing involved.
A A photo tutorial is included to work the edging.
