Design in Progress: Sculpted Frost Coat

DSCF1554I love the frost flower lace pattern with its lattice panels and want to create a a-line coat with lattice panels on the sleeves and the frost flower pattern on the back and the fronts. It is a design that has evolved from its beginning as a design submission to the Japanese magazine Amirisu. Now it has been given cuffs, and I am planning a shawl collar. I found that by combining the divine melange lace weight Du Store Alpakka, Dreamline, Soul with the beautiful light fingering comb wool Hifa Huldra Kamgarn a stunning stitch definition as well as a slight halo was created. The color that appeared was an extra deep pink color with lilac tones. This design is one of a series I am planning for the Norwegian magazine Familien’s special issue Strikk/Knit due out in late August next year, then in English on Ravelry.

Other great design news is that one of my designs for Interweave Knits have been excepted and will be published in the 2015 Fall issue.

    Wow Linda that looks stunning. Such a beautiful colour you have created. The stitch definition looks fabulous. Huge congratulations on the Interweave Knits design acceptance. You deserve every success. The Familien special issue will be all the better for featuring this striking design. Congratulations Linda.

    • I am so delighted that you think so! Yes, the stitch definition is fabulous thanks to the combed wool. I am very chuffed and I barely wait for the yarn to arrive! I do hope so! Thank you very much, Janie!

    This little tease looks like another winner. Earlier this year, I designed myself a frost flower sweater but frogged it – just did not go together well.
    I am looking forward to yours and I already have a 2 skein combination that I will hold in reserve for when this project goes English.

    Have a safe and wonderful Holiday.

    • I hope it will be, Sandra! I am sorry to hear about your frost flower sweater! I am currently pondering on the pattern placement on the fronts! I am delighted that you do! Thank you so much, Sandra!

      I wish you a safe and wonderful Holiday too!
