This brim is in Simplinatural and this hat makes me feel like a storybook character!

This shoot was a blast! We played with goats (they were even trying to lick the camera!), picked flowers with the neighbor kids, and did mini dance parties in between shots. The hat is just as fun to knit!

The Kid-Paillettes that is shown for the hat body has darling little sequins strung in with the mohair and silk to give your days and nights a bit of glimmer.

Charli Lace Pullover

Charli Lace Pullover by Jessica Bolof

Arrowhead lace is one of my obsessions. Knit this sweater and you will see how addicting it can be! Charli has a relaxed silhouette with an offset lace pattern, dropped shoulders, positive ease, and a square neckline.

Knitting starts at the hem in the round with a ribbed border that flows nicely into the lace body, the back is worked first, then the front, sleeves and collar are picked up before working in the round.

I hope you enjoy the wonderful photo spread! There’s a surprise at the end!

Hello Fall Sale

Fall KAL: Amber Cardigan!

Amber Cardigan by Jessica BolofAmber Cardigan by Jessica Bolof

It’s Time For a Fall KAL!

 

Mark your calendars! The KAL will run September 15th – October 31st!

Schmutzerella Yarns and I are joining together for a virtual KAL (Knit A Long) with my Amber Cardigan! Join in on the fun anytime during the KAL for chatter & prizes in the thread on Ravelry.com.

Who says a lightweight sweater must be knit on tiny needles? Not me! Use 2 strands of lace weight yarn held together for this quick but delicate looking sweater. It is knit bottom-up in one piece, has built in sleeves, rolled edges in the front, and the only seaming you will need to do is at the shoulders. If you want to knit a fingering weight version simply use 1 strand at a time and you will only need half the stated amount of yarn!

Sizes:
To fit a 28 (32, 36, 40, 44, 48, 52, 56, 60)” /
71 (81, 90, 101.5, 112, 122, 132, 142, 152.5)cm bust

Yarn (remember that yarn is held double so that’s why you need so much!):

885 (1045, 1200, 1355, 1515, 1675, 1820, 2010, 2160) yards / 2248 (2560, 3048, 3442, 3848, 4254, 4623, 5105, 5486) meters of lace weight yarn

[Join in on the KAL fun here!]
