A couple of weeks ago…

A few weeks ago I gave you a sneak peek at a couple of soon to be released patterns. One, Plissado Scarf – you’ve seen now; the other – Wicker Cardi – I am pleased to show you today!

This sweet little cardigan, just for your special little girl, is available as a web bonus pattern from Creative Knitting Magazine. You do have to be a subscriber, either print or digital to access the pattern file. (Subscribing is a pretty good value for the number of patterns you get.) I really like how the wicker pattern flows into the ribs on this sweater. And the picot crochet border adds that special touch don’t you think.

 

Midwinter Dream Lace Cardigan

Another of my designs that was just released by Three Irish Girls is Midwinter Dream. “This stylish lightweight lace cardigan goes equally well with casual or formal outfits. Shaping is accomplished by changing needle sizes, with no worries about increasing or decreasing in the lace pattern. Working the cardigan as one piece also keeps finishing to a minimum, so when you’re done, you’re done!” (Quote from Three Irish Girls web site.) This is my favorite photo that Sharon took for the pattern – I just love the brooch.

 

And here is another that shows the whole cardigan……looks fabulous with a belt too!

And yes, I’ve got new designs in the works – some with publishers and some to be released under my Desert Rose Designs label. Stay tuned for next year…….in the meantime…I hope you enjoy knitting these two!                                                               (or any of my other patterns :))

Cheers! Jean
