Introducing Suzanna April 18, 2012


My very first pattern for the Accessory Collection 2012 is live!!!

Suzanna, is a pair of legwarmers design that is named after my dear friend Suzanne who is also the photographer for some of my designs. Over dinner one night, she showed me a pair of legwarmers that she loved and told me that she would love to have a pair. I told her, ‘Well, I will see what I can do.’

I went home that night and started sketching the design. I know that I wanted something simple and classic. I also wanted the legwarmers to be a nice compliment to an outfit but not to over-power it. Therefore, I decided to keep the main body of the legwarmers simple and jazz it up with other design elements such as side buttons enclosure and the lace trim.

The final product is better than what I expected.

Here is information of the legwarmers:

SIZE
S (kid), M (Teen/adult), L (Comfy fit)

FINISHED MEASUREMENTS
Circumference: 10 (11.5, 13.15) inches after pressing without stretching
Height: 12.5 (15, 15) inches tall

The height and circumference can be varies depending on personal preference. The legwarmer will stretch and add up to 3-4 inches to the finished circumference.

The pattern included the detail instruction for the pattern and all the related charts.

If anyone is interested in the pattern, it is now available at Ravelry.com in PDF format.

Happy Knitting!!!

Accessory Collection 2012-2013 – Suzanna April 13, 2012


Besides working on my very first kids collection this year, you may be wondering whether or not I will have a accessory collection for this year as well. And the answer is a big ‘YES’. You kidding me! I love knitting winter accessories.. I am planning on some mittens, scarf, hats and socks design.

Above is my very first design, Suzanna, a legwarmers design features twisted rib, small cable rib, buttons side enclosed and stretch ruffle trim. The legwarmers measures 19.5 inches in height and stretch up to 15 inches in circumference. The pattern will be written in 2 sizes, one for kids and one for adult. Stay tunes for the pattern in the next 2 weeks.

A big thank you to my talented friend Suzanne at SP Photoart for taking the pictures.

One side note, I have people emailing me and wanted to know when the pattern for Taylor is available. I am working on the written pattern; hopefully, by the end of the month. Please stay tune for more update.
