Winter 2013 BadCatDesigns Group Project
Champagne Powder, if you have ever been skiing in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. This project is all about the process. I wanted to get back to the process, which is really why I love to knit. I wanted to lose the rules, the stitch counts, and just have some fun. I promise that all lace knitters will find something lovely here, but it might not be the same thing for each of you. If you are feeling frisky and creative, and you trust me not to lead you too far astray, please join me! Project options include a stole, and a winter wrap. The wrap is really an unstructured jacket, with sleeves and a collar of sorts. There will be some nice lace work, just a little bead knitting and lots of choices. If you are looking for a pattern to simply follow, step away from the monitor. I might make you sad. If you are willing to let go a little and frolic in the snow, come on in.
This project requires measuring yourself for a custom sized stole or sleeved wrap.
This project requires reading charts.
This project will work with any lace weight kid mohair blend you like, plus others. I have a spread sheet of many yarn options included in the pattern file.
As of today, 6/8/13, the full file is available as a PDF download. This is a 23 page pattern file and includes everything you need to make a custom wrap. As your wrap will be based on your own measurements you must be willing to use the included worksheet and just a little math. Have some fun!
