Little Buds

February 9, 2022

Little Buds is a reversible, assigned pooling design ideal for semi-solid or tonal yarns with a small section of high contrast color. With this type of design, you assign one stitch to the main color and a different stitch to the contrast color. This design assigns garter stitch to the the main color and “bud” stitch to the contrast color to create a cute little scarf with random pops of color. Little Buds is knit diagonally, and the size is adjustable. The look of your scarf will depend on the yarn you use. Sample scarf knit with Wollmeise Pure in AP Miriel. Enjoy!

I am enjoying this design so much! Flores is a top-down, raglan pullover knit with light fingering weight yarn. Eri’s designs are so beautiful! I used Holst Garn Noble in Tyrian Rose. My knitting supplies are from Spun Fibre Arts.

Eri Shimizu’s Caroline Design

August 1, 2021

I’m doing some knitting for myself! This is Eri Shimizu’s Caroline pullover. It has lots of cables and calls for light fingering weight yarn. My sweater is knit with Biches et Buches Le Petit Lambswool in Forest Green. Yarn softens after washing and sweater feels so cozy. This design is seriously beautiful!
