Amazing Luxury Knits
Cross Stitch Shawl & Scarf which I designed a couple of years ago but never published. I used Alchemy Silken Straw which is a very interesting silk yarn which looks and feels like straw. It does soften a lot as you knit it and wear it. As this is an expensive yarn I wanted a one skein project and designed the scarf above.
This is how the subscription will work:
Sign up and you will receive a new pattern for an accessory (which could be shawls, scarves, gloves/mittens/fingerless mitts, cowls or other accessories) which is designed for a gorgeous luxury yarn. I will only use 1-2 skeins for each project and I will suggest cheaper alternatives. The designs will use yarns ranging from laceweight to aranweight yarns and a variety of stitch patterns including dropped stitches, lace, cables and possibly slip stitch colourwork (which is very easy for those who aren't comfortable with stranded colourwork).
At the end of the 6 month period the patterns will be compiled as an e-book which you can download. All the patterns will be available individually too but obviously you will save money if you subscribe. Full price for all 6 patterns will be £18 but the e-book subscription is available for £12.If you sign up before end of October you will be able to take advantage of the special introductory price of £10. Click here to subscribe.
Approx two weeks before each pattern is due to be released I will put up a pattern page on Ravelry so you can see pics of the project and yarn suggestions.
