Technicolor: Movie Night, a designers’ collection, is here!!
The first pattern in the collection is my Hollywood and Vine Shawl.
The intersection of Hollywood Boulevard and Vine Street in Hollywood first became known in the 1920s for its concentration of radio and movie-related businesses. In fact, the Hollywood Walk of Fame is centered on the intersection. You could say that the inspiration for the Hollywood and Vine Shawl is filmmaking itself, the use of costume and fabric to create beauty, style, and the very look of a film.
Hollywood and Vine is a large structured shawl measuring approximately 65 x 47 x 40 inches. Worked bottom up in DK weight yarn, a central cabled panel is bedecked by a lacy, vining background echoing the leafy central motif. An edging that picks up textural details from the body of the shawl frames and finishes the piece. Complete instructions are provided in both written and charted formats.
I absolutely love the lifted yarnover knot stitch – it’s very fun to work, and beautiful, as well! It creates a sort of faux cable, and is used in both the Leaf and Vine section and the knitted on border.
Technicolor: Movie Night is a collection of eight designs by four designers, and is being offered in a staggered release.
The price of the collection increases incrementally each week, ending with a final selling price of $40. No matter when you purchase the collection, you will own the entire e-book as each new pattern is added (updates will be sent to you as each new pattern is added).
Individual patterns may be purchased from the independent designers about two weeks after the complete collection has been released (in December).
Just a note that three of the patterns were included in the Technicolor: Matinee collection and are already available individually. Those patterns are my Calla Lily Wrap, Knit Eco Chic’s On the Set, and Sue McCain’s Holyrood Hooded Scarf (link goes to Ravelry).
I am so excited to finally be able to share this design and this collection with you!! Enjoy!
