. . . fer forgé . . .

Let me present my new pattern to you… It has just been released.

Fer forgé, a cabled pattern inspired by a beautiful ironwork table.

This was my first tryout, but it looked a little too much to me… too many cables and bobbles … So I eliminated a few small cables and bobbles. Below is the new swatch.
I usually don’t know where the inspiration comes from, it just pops up, but this time I do 😀

The slightly oversized, cropped pullover is worked top down and seamlessly in the round.

It starts with the neckband, then a few short rows are worked to shape the back neck, the circular yoke is built up with cables and bobbles.

Similar cable patterns are added to the bottom sides …

and the sleeves…

Hello yellow, my latest pattern has been published yesterday…

Linne tee: a simple, summery tee with an easy lace pattern at the top and bottom. Knit in linen or linen / cotton blend, it is perfect for sunny summer days.

It is worked seamlessly starting at the top lace section at the back.
Both sleeve caps and the back are worked bottom up at the same time. The edges of the sleeve are worked at the same time in a slip stitch pattern. It slightly pulls in the sleeve caps preventing them from flaring out too much.

Stitches are put on hold for the back neck and increases are made to shape the V-neck at the front. Once the sleeve caps are finished, the body is worked top down. But first, a few short rows are worked at front and back for a better fit / shape. Then the body is knit in the round and finished with the lace edge at the bottom.
