More designs inPortraits
This month we have toured our brand new Portraits book.
We created this book with holiday knitting in mind, filling it with beautiful quick-to-knit designs. From sweaters in bulky yarns to pretty accessories, there's still time to finish the projects in Portraits in time for the holidays.
(Left to right) The top row of designs feature Chalet and colorful Chateau, interchanging the two colors to show variations, just like this week's free Augustine pattern. Dora Maar is a scarf with a feather and fan edging that is shown with a striped edge and also, equally beautiful, in a solid color. Cameo is a project with options: knit it in either Chalet or Chateau and choose between the vest or the long sleeved version. Eugenia may be the quickest knit in Portraits, this squishy moss stitch beret takes just two hanks of either yarn.
Portraits not only has design variety, but yarn variety too. (Bottom row) Gabrielle is an oversized cardigan knit in Majestic Tweed. At a lace gauge of 4 stitches/inch, you will definitely see instant progress as you knit. Lucretia is a crescent shaped wrap that celebrates variety. Shown in Fresco, Liberty Wool Light and Soft Linen, the pattern gives two sizes, simply adjusted by changing gauge.
Are you ready to cast on? Look for Portraits at your LYS. As a special treat, if you buy the book from your LYS, you will find a scratch off code for a one-time only Ravelry download of the eBook. You can purchase the Portraits eBook and individual patterns online.
