Thrilled to see the new issue of Knitscene, Accessories 2013, with two of my designs in it!
One is a cowl in four colors called Frequency Cowl. Most of the patterns in this section of the issue have names that relate to electricity. I imagine the editors having a great time with new and interesting naming ideas. Even the properties of electricity!
Not only is Frequency in the magazine, but it is also featured on the table of contents with a fantastic photograph. So honored!
The other is a scarf called Zed Scarf. Zed uses two colors of DK yarn. It is long and cushy and has fringe. Asymmetrical fringe.
Why “Zed,” you ask? Because each module looks something like the letter Z. British speakers do not say “zee.” They say “zed.” As in, “I’ll find your address using the A to Zed.”
Both of these designs use modular knitting. You knit a small piece, like a square or a rectangle. Then you knit a second piece on to the edge of the first piece. And so forth, adding modules until you have a full project. It is a fun way to knit. How can it ever be boring when all you have to do is this little piece now?
There’s a post here on making the edges of your Zed Scarf even and beautiful. We all want even and beautiful every time.
Interweave did an amazing job with the styling of these two designs! Their photography is superb. I hope you’ll take a look at their work by clicking on the links above and here.
