The Floral Tee Fresh as a daisy, this short-sleeved pullover gets an extra dose of charm from a line of colorful blooms decorating the yoke. The tee, fashioned in lilac Rialto 4-Ply, features gentle side shaping, a wide single-rib waistband and single-rib trim at neck and sleeve edges. The flowers are crocheted with small lengths of coral and primrose Baby Cashmerino.
Yarn quantities are for sweater body. Also need “oddments of Baby Cashmerino in Primrose 01 and Coral 50 for the flowers”
The finished bust measurements given are twice the width of the back, but depending on how closely you tie the fronts, the front measurement will vary to fit.
The fronts are knitted sideways from the side seams to the ties. They are given first so the back can be measured against the fronts and if your tension is not quite correct, the number of rows worked to the armhole and to the shoulder can be adjusted.
When sewing side seams and shoulder seams, join approximately 2 stitches to ever 3 row-ends.
Publication description: Close up an otherwise simple stockinete-stitch tunic reveals a lavish little secret, a sumptuous scallop-edged lace stitch that decorates the borders of the body and sleeves. The subtly bell-shaped tunic whips up in Angel.
Pattern notes:Innocent yet alluring, relaxed yet elegant, a gorgeous mohair/silk cardigan is a study in contrast. Knitted on larger needles that the Angel yarn normally calls for in order to achieve an extra-light texture, the plain stockinette body is accented with dramatic bands of blackberry stitch on the front edges and sleeve cuffs.
The tension over the lace pattern will vary from the stated stockinette stitch tension.
Magazine Description: What could be more delicate than this enchanting lace topper? The piece, which falls between a capelet and a shrug in length, is worked from the neck edge down in lilac Angel. The circular shape is folded at the sides and the edges are caught together to create the short sleeves; it buttons gracefully at the throat.
Deeply feminine and fantastically flattering, this shrug, while small, is destined to be noticed. Worked in one piece from the top down in a summery coral shade of Angel yarn, the garment boasts a stockinette front, ribbed sleeve cuffs and a surprise—intricate lace paneling—on the back.
This little girl’s dress is all about contemporary, candy-striped appeal, but in a shape that harks back to the traditional pinafore. Knit in stockinette stitch with garter stitch edgings, the dress features a plain-panel yoke, playful attached bow and gentle gathers that give a slight flare to the skirt. In mint green and ecru Eco Baby yarn, an organic, Fair Trade cotton.
Striking Stripes Another exuberant option for the throw pillows, this one in thick-and-thin stripes of red, lime, fuchsia and racing blue. The stockinette cushion cover with back-button closure is worked in Rialto Aran merino wool.
Two balls each A & B, one back each C & D
