I have a new creation that just went live in the Twist Collective 2011 Fall Issue. Its name is "Riata" (All photos courtesy of Twist Collective. Jamie Dixon, photographer.).
When I first saw this rope cable in one of my stitch dictionaries, I knew I wanted to design a sweater with it. In fact, one of the reasons I purchased the dictionary was for THIS stitch, cable junkie that I am. I originally thought that I could only design a simple scarf because it looks complicated.
BUT I WANTED A SWEATER!
I stared at the picture of the stitch for a long time, then thought, "Hell, just work a swatch to get a feel for the mechanics of it to figure out how to design a sweater around it." (This swatching idea is profound.)
So, I did. And discovered that it is much simpler than it looks.
I truly thank Twist Collective for this opportunity.
