After all the delay, the pattern for my first design for my Accessory Collection, 2011, Maneisha, has completed and live at Ravelry.com. For the Accessory Collection, 2011, I wanted to create a collection that is functional and with different skill levels for all knitters. Maneisha is a fingerless mittens design that combined Eyelet Cable Rib and a texture stitch… I wanted to create a design that is fun for experienced knitters and also fun for beginner who would like to experience basic cable and lace knitting and also using magic loop method.
Here is the basic information about Maneisha:
