my very first sweater design:
the fleur jacket
ta da! i am so excited...this is my first sweater design: the fleur jacket. inspired by mid-century fashion editor fleur cowles. rowan scottish tweed knit up in the aptly named dimple stitch creates a dense, textured fabric that feels light yet substantial. deep v-neck, single button closure and slightly cropped style make it an easy and stylish layering piece. what do you think??
i have to give a big shout-out to my friend lucinda, who showed me how to add, subtract, and listen to the yarn. she is living proof of this: give a woman a pattern and you feed her knitting passion for a day. teach her the basics of design and you feed her creativity forever! thanks, buddy.
sorry this pic is a little dark. snapped a quickie before heading to a meeting this morning. will post a better one soon.
inspired by fleur cowles and these wonderful images from flair magazine
