Hello, dear friends! The final two patterns are now available in this year’s fabulous Rise Up Collection! The patterns are Ruth Brasch’s Vacillate Socks and Jill Wolcott’s Phoenix Cosy.
Ruth Brasch’s Vacillate Socks especially feature a Fleegle Heel, which does not require picking up any stitches in making the heel flap. They also feature traveling cables and alternating textures. Very fun!!! Ruth designs lots of socks, so you will be in good hands when making these socks!
Jill Wolcott designed this shoulder cozy, also known as the Phoenix Cosy. The design is created using slipped stitches and German short rows. Jill writes her patterns in a different and interesting style. Take a look and enjoy! I love this watercolor rendering she made of the cosy. The final photographs will be added to the Collection soon, as will the Spanish translation of this pattern.
Soon, the individual patterns may be purchased from the independent designers a week or two after the entire collection has been released. The Garden Cowl’s individual price will be $6.50.
I wanted to share this gorgeous version of the Garden Cowl knit by Bridget, who graciously tested the pattern for me. Bridget used just two colors of yarn: Erika Knight British Blue Yarn in the colorway Clarissa (about 380 yards) and Malabrigo Rios in the colorway Liquidambar (about 460 yards). Her knitting is just beautiful, and the colorways are perfect. You can really see the use of positive/ negative space in this photo.
For all the details, like the yarn and needle sizes called for in the pattern, please see The Garden Cowl.
Thank you for your support in this fun and collaborative venture with me and with the other six independent designers. In the next post, I will post photos of the entire collection.
Have a great week!!
