diy derek lam


i am so excited, i could puke up a yarn ball. preferably lemon yellow sublime bamboo. this is the spring project that will officially put an end to my knitting hiatus.

the moment i spied this raglan mesh pullover in derek lam's spring 2012 collection, i knew i had to make it. then today, browsing through an issue of rowan in my lys, i spied "foxtail," martin storey's mesh pullover. bingo.


one of the key details in lam's design is the  shaping. i love how it hugs the shoulders, thanks to the clever combo of the ribbed mesh and raglan sleeves.

my hubby is taking me out for a birthday dinner tonight. but all i want to do is stay home and knit. is that so wrong?

Nice project, and I hope you had a nice birthday.

The yarn looks positively gorgeous, sort of a sily sheen to it, no? :}

Will you be redesigning the sleeves/shoulders to raglan? I really like the look of the original!

thanks jillian...and tx for bday wishes.
entre nous: you are correct...very nice silky sheen :)
and lisette: i def want to do the raglan sleeve. the original rowan design is lovely. but i feel like lam's raglan is more modern & athletic looking. plus it will add an extra challenge to this...never want this stuff to be too easy ;)

Wonderful! Yes, why make it easy indeed! :-)
