Last fall, my boyfriend asked me to knit him a scarf. Finding scarf patterns for men is hard: it needs to be interesting (visually, but also so I can make it to the end of the knitting part without getting too bored) but not girly, so most of the lace patterns don’t work. Browsing Ravelry, I stumbled upon the Meadowbrook pattern by Stephen West. I’m not a big Stephen West fan, as I find his style too excentric for my taste, but some of his simpler patterns have really beautiful details (I made a Windschief hat something like a year ago, I’ve never blogged it but I love the result).
Let me introduce you to a third dress knitted by my grandmother, this time with moss stitch and cables.
I wish I hadn’t said anything! Last week I was complaining about the sun preventing me to take pictures, and there I am, stuck here because of the snow!
Let’s take this opportunity to show you another warm, cosy knitted dress made by my grandmother.
What? You knitted a whole dress?!
Haha. Just kidding. I’m definitely cheating here, because this project is not my own but my grandmother’s! The day when I’ll be able to knit a dress in size 4 needles has not arrived yet, but my grandmother knits at the speed of light and thanks to her I now have years of pretty sweaters and dresses in my collection. I know, I’m so lucky 🙂
So I thought some of you might be interested in seeing some of *her* makes…
