Enchanted Knits 2014

There's a new magazine from Interweave Press called 
that includes two of my designs!

The first is called A Hunger for Rampion and is inspired by the 
story of Rapunzel.

Front
Back
The sweater has a lace section at the upper front that repeats at the sleeve cuffs. The cascading cables are like Rapunzel's tresses, of course. The lovely yarn is Rowan Baby Merino Silk DK. 

My other design is Hervor's Undermittens.
This one is the original sample in Cascade 220 Sport,
but you will see that we used Rowan Felted Tweed for the magazine mittens.
These mittens are a colorwork workout and have a jaunty little scalloped edge.

If you haven't gotten your hands on a copy of Enchanted Knits, which is hot off the press, have a look at mine and all the other designs included on the Ravelry pages for lots more info.




I hope you'll try them!
