Geometric Patterns

I just love all the new [tag]geometric[/tag] patterns that are hitting the market lately. [tag]Designers[/tag] and [tag]yarn companies[/tag] are pushing the envelope with their thought processes and designing cutting edge sweater shapes that are not your grandmothers boxy cardigan! My thought are – It’s about time designs are getting trendy! I don’t want to look like a grandma – even tho I am one!

I received an email from [tag]Berroco[/tag] with pics from booklet #259 L’attitude. Berroco describes the booklet as containing “Pieces that make a statement include a swingy cardi that is very short in front and long in back, a circle coat, a one-piece shoulder topper, long v-neck vest with lace panels, a mesh shrug and a dramatic ribbed tunic, generously shaped with a dividend at the hip.

I just love the shape of Napoli. A swingy cardi is the perfect topper for your layered look. Then there is Nigella with a medalion look in the back center and knit in a circle. A new take on an attention-getting circle cardigan, this time in Touché with concentric circles of stitch patterning.

    I am in the process of knitting the Napoli sweater. The touche yarn is awful and although the shape of the sweater is nice, there were mistakes in the pattern and it’s a bear to knit. I’ll be so happy when it’s done. I dubbed it the SFH–sweater from hell.

    Hey Deb, thanks for letting me know. I hate it when the yarn recommended sucks! Can you tell more as to why it is hard to knit – is the stitch difficult or just the combination of mistakes in the pattern and the awful yarn?

    I’m hunting for a knitting pattern for a cotton, one-piece shoulder wrap that includes three large buttons and one button hole. It is a stunning style in the stores but my mom has offered to knit me one—-a far better and more sentimental option!!! Any suggestions?

    Jane,I think I know the shoulder wrap you are talking about as my daughter and I saw one that she fell in love with. I am attempting to knit one now but with combo Alpaca and Peruvian wool by Berroco. If it turns out would be happy to send you a photo and the pattern I have come up with. The one we saw was all stockinette stitch but I’m doing broken rib around all edges to prevent curling.

    I am on the hunt for the three button wrap. My oldest daughter has her heart set on it. Is such a pattern available??? ANYWHERE??? She never asks for anything, all the more reason to surprise her. Thanks so much for any information,
