I can’t believe I began work on these designs in April…as someone not known for her patience, it’s been hard to hold them back over the summer! But it gave them time to be tested by some lovely knitters, and to be edited and re-edited about three dozen times by me. And finally, the first five patterns of The Virescent Collection are finally up on Ravelry:
Moving clockwise around the collage, they are:
Leandra Scarf, knit in Traveler Aran from The Plucky Knitter
Lisanne Mitts, knit from Primo Sport from The Plucky Knitter
Linnea Cowl, knit in Playtime Worsted from Marianated Yarns
Shelby Hat, knit in Playtime Worsted from Marianated Yarns
Danica Cowl, knit in Squishy from Anzula
Four more patterns will follow in the upcoming months…a shawlette, bulky scarf, mittens, and lightweight slouch. The full collection (current five patterns plus upcoming four) and individual patterns — plus all my other published patterns! — are 20% off on Ravelry until the end of day on Friday!
As you can tell, the recurring motif throughout all the patterns is the large central cable. Matchy matchy! My intention is that knitters can choose from among the offerings for hands, heads, and necks, and then choose suitable bases from their favorite dyers to make up a set, if desired. Feel free to branch away from green. 🙂
I’d like to give away a copy of the ENTIRE COLLECTION to a reader, both the five current patterns and the four upcoming ones! Just comment and name your favorite of these designs, as well as give me a way to reach you (Rav name, email, etc.). I’ll choose a name at random at the end of the week.
On that note, I owe a copy of the Adriatic Stole pattern to TERRI who commented on that post — Terri, could you let me know how I can get that pattern to you? Thanks!
