New Pattern

I have just released Pembry.  This pattern has been ready to be released for a while, except for the photos.  We have had some really frigid temperatures here lately and it has been difficult to be outside long enough to take any meaningful photos.  A big Thank You to my lovely model who braved -15 degree temps so I could get a few good shots of this cowl/wrap/hood.
Designed to be worn either dressed up or dressed down, Pembry is versatile, light, airy and has an elegant drape.  It uses less than one skein of fingering weight yarn and is knit on 5.00mm(US size 8) needles.

 I think it would look equally great over the shoulders with a strappy black dress, or a tank top with jeans.  Dropped stitches combined with the large needles create the airy fabric and elegant drape.

Pembry is reversible (though I personally prefer the reverse stockinette side) and would be a great beginner knit.  If you are not a beginner, it is pretty mindless (no purl stitches) and is a great way to use up that single skein of yarn in your stash.

Coming Soon

I have been working on a cowl/wrap/hood pattern.  It is called Pembry and it is currently with the tech editor being fine tuned. 

These are progress photos taken in my iPhone.  They were taken before blocking and before the ends were woven in. The finished project will look more polished ;)

It is knit in the round, it is reversible (I like the reverse stockinette side best) and uses dropped stitches.  
Pembry uses fingering weight yarn (less than a 100gram skein) and is knit on 5.00 mm needles to create a loose, airy fabric that drapes elegantly. 

I designed it because I wanted something that could go over my shoulders with a black sleeveless dress, but I think it would be great with jeans and a tank top so I might style it that way for the pattern photos. 
There I am wearing it hood-style with no make-up on. 

The yarn is KnitPicks Gloss Fingering in 'Velveteen'

I expect to release it next week.
