So..what are you knitting?
I get this question a lot! So does Iwona.
Here are some answers.
What Iwona has been knitting is actually crochet.
She is a busy gal with many things on the go, but recently she has been experimenting with this stitch pattern.
Fine Anzula Cloud makes this pretty irresistible. Too bad you can’t touch it through the computer screen. The little dabs of black on a white backdrop was a inspired choice. When this grows up it will be a scarf.
I made this sweater from yarn I’ve had stashed for about three years now. Malabrigo Worsted in a colour called Frank Ochre. This was an excellent pattern the charm of which is (as most things are) in the details.
Let’s start with the obvious – the collar in “Bear Claw” pattern
The front is garter stitch, and the back is stocking stitch. The ribbing (only in the back) keeps the bottom a snug fit.
The back has elegant fanned increases.
The best thing is the edges at the opening. So neat and trim!
This pattern is called Nanook and it is by Heidi Kirrmaier.
