so…what?

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.

What are you knitting?

Craftily yours
Kristin

    I made this pattern 2 times for 2 differant sister in laws. Its so pretty. Now its driving me crazy as to what the edge stitch was called and I cant find my pattern anywhere. I probably threw it out because after making it twice I was sick of it! Lol
