Beech Street

I am so over-the-moon excited to be sharing this new design with you. Today is the official launch date of the Holla Knits Fall 2014 design collection and I have a design in it!

As a newer designer, I still have a lot of moments when I'm in the middle of knitting and design writing and begin to doubt that the finished piece will turn out like I hope. I tend to have a really strong mental image of what I'm aiming for but worry that I can't execute it. This was one of those pieces. At one point, I felt like the big brioche rectangle was going to end up just that. But it didn't! 

This was the sketch that I submitted to Allyson with my submission. And I have to say, I think the finished vest looks pretty much spot on. 

This vest is now available for purchase as a digital download from the Holla Knits site. Today is the beginning of a fantastic blog tour full of pattern and yarn giveaways. I'll be back on the 16th talking more about he design.

  1. Ho'omaka'i. It looks warm but light enough for one to not have to wear a jacket for the day.

  2. This is one of my favorites from the new issue. Congrats!

  3. It's been so long since I visited your blog last, so hello! Your new pattern looks lovely, and I'm so excited for you!

  4. Beautiful! I love the drape of it. Congrats!


I'd love to hear from you!
