It’s a Filati Handstrick 38 pattern and not too difficult, but interesting enough to make this project a very fun knit. One day soon it will hopefully be a pretty and fitting sweater. The yarn is Lana Grossa’s Evento in 044. I fell for it so hard. Look at the colors. Beautiful! *-*
I found this pattern on Ravelry: LINK And I’m so in love with it! It’s simple, it doesn’t need a lot of yarn and it looks great. I’ll definitely knit more of these. They’d make a great present, too. The yarn I used for this is Lana Grossa’s Cotone in black and sudan brown.
It is told that the “Crouching Lady” once was a mother who lived with her children in the mountains a long, long time ago. In old times the waves of the North Sea sometimes reached up to those mountains and flooded all the land around them. On one of those days, the lady saw that her children were in danger of drowning in the waves, so she crouched down and let them climb up on her back to keep them safe. When the sea calmed down again, the children had survived, but their mother had turned to stone.
My father’s gf T. bestowed her entire yarn stash upon my person on Easter and since then I’ve been wondering what to do with it. (Happy, happy times…)
I picked 6 skeins of alpaca yarn in 2 colors and decided to make a vest out of them. And because I couldn’t find a pattern I liked, I created my own. (on a flashcard, yes.)
I was almost done with the back, but then the yarn came apart and I lost ~612865 stitches, so I had to redo everything. Do not trust pre-existing knots in your skeins!
This one is for my favorite sister and it will probably look much better on her than on me. I was greatly inspired by Susanna Celso’s Hatticus pattern: LINK However, I changed a few things: Lana Grossa’s Alta Moda Super Baby yarn (what a name) is really soft and the original pattern did not always agree with it. I also made it a little bigger than the original for a looser fit.
