I’m Published!!!!!!!

November 25, 2010

I’m so excited, for me, for Trisha, Abi, and Tesia, for all the other designers, and of course, for Sharon for putting together an amazing Lookbook.

Here are my patterns in the collection:

Cypress Grove is a stole/wide scarf, knit in a fingering weight yarn.  The sample is in McNamara on Springvale Sock.  This colorway is absolutely perfect…it looks like sun-kissed leaves.  Cypress Grove is knit in two identical halves, starting at the tip of a triangle, gradually widened in pattern, then knit as a rectangle through the center.  When the knitting is finished, you simply graft the two sides together and you have a beautiful, symmetrical stole.







My next pattern in the collection is Hearts Apart.  Hearts Apart is a toe-up anklet, featuring a heart motif that is separated by the growing arch expansion.  It was originally designed to answer the question “What does a broken heart look like in yarn form?” but once finished, I realized it could be interpreted differently…two souls finding each other in life or two lovers kept apart by time or space.  You can tell your story with Hearts Apart.  This sample was knit in Cosmo on Adorn.




Next up is Samovar.  Samovar is a square shawl, knit in the round from the center out, in two coordinating colors of Westerly Sea Sock.  It is simple and elegant, and, even though I designed it, surprises me with its beauty every time I see it!  The pattern also features directions for using the charts to create a triangular shawl.





And, last but not least, What Cheer! What Cheer! is an easy-to-knit round yoke sweater, knit from the bottom up, featuring a simple slip stitch pattern to play with the colors of a handpainted yarn while minimizing pooling.  The pattern features two versions…one with folded hems and a second with a ribbed cuff/hem.  This pattern is written for sizes 3M to 6 years and includes positive easy and sleeves that can be folded up for plenty of growing room.  It is knit in Springvale SuperMerino, a superwash worsted weight yarn, for easy care.  The sample on the left is knit in Elowyn and Bryn.  The baby version on the right is made from one-of-a kind colorways.






I hope you enjoy these and all the new patterns…and delicious new colorways…in the Fall Collection.

    Great job Allison! These designs are amazing and I will be thrilled to knit some, if not all, of them. I can just see my granddaughter in that cute cardigan. And I want the Samovar for myself.
