Notes

I love this yarn, so I’m really happy that the magazine editor requested that I use the same yarn (in a different color -- sort of terra cotta -- see “Sister Act” project page).

This is an antique-inspired stitch pattern and garment construction. While researching early love knot crochet for the Love Knot Adventures class I taught at the 2012 CGOA conference, I noticed several uses of this love knot-double crochet stitch combo; sometimes as an insertion, sometimes an edging. (Always in thread.)

I swatched this stitch pattern in this worsted weight alpaca-tencel yarn for my class, and fell in love with alpaca love knots. This is when I realized that the “sproing” quality alpaca has is awesome for love knots!
