I've got a shawl pattern in the works and need a few test knitters. My project is still a WIP, but since this shawl is worked from the bottom up I was able to write out the pattern before finishing the project.
Like so many others, I'm a fan of Downton Abbey. As a lover of vintage clothes, tea parties, and anything Victorian I suppose this isn't really surprising. I have a hard time keeping up with the storylines, mostly because I tend to pay more attention to the lovely costumes than the dialog.
So, inspired by the early '20s costumes in Seasons 4 & 5, I created a pullover with some vintage styling and details. I think my favorite detail is the cuff, a knitted version of a French cuff.
I've been saving these sparkly buttons for something special, and decided to turn them into 'cuff links' for this sweater.

Simple and elegant. These were my two goals when designing the Ripple Edge Cardigan for knit.purl. A project that would be relaxing to work with a few details to make it interesting, but also elegant and easy to wear. Feather and fan, one of my favorite stitch patterns, never seems to get old for me. There is something about it that gives a beautiful vintage quality to whatever it adorns. Here is edges an otherwise simple open front cardigan with set-in elbow length sleeves.

I've really enjoyed working with Interweave over the years. Here are a few of my favorite patterns:
