Thank you to AVFKW team for allowing me to be the January 2020 Proverbial Club Contributor.

If you do an internet search for inspirational quotes about ‘yesterday’ you will find that most of them advise you to let go of yesterday. Marcus Aurelius, a Stoic Philosopher and Roman Emperor believed: “Tomorrow is nothing, today is late, the good lived yesterday.” Our yesterday’s should not be forgotten or thrown aside. Yesterdays are full of wisdom, valuable memories, and legacies. ieri is the Italian word for ‘yesterday’. When you knit Ieri, I want you to remember the best of your yesterdays including the best lessons from your difficult yesterdays.

Ieri is knit side-to-side in a loose gauge to create an off-center triangle shape with lots of drape and can be styled various ways. Work your way through garter stitches littered with eyelets, stripes of lace mesh, and a lace mesh border punctuated with a picot bind off.

  • picot bind-off
  • tassel(s)


  • one skein project
