I design at the intersection of style and organic with Puddles, my Great Dane, by my side in the mountains of North Carolina surrounded by God's majestic and inspiring creation. My eye for knitwear meets caring about health, people, and the environment with the goal of connecting with others through high quality knitting patterns that feature eco yarns!
I hope you derive as much enjoyment in working up my patterns as I have had in creating them! Today is a great day to knit :-)
"In the City" features both "City Girl Cowl" and "Northern City Girl Cowl" patterns in one exciting collection. Eco Chic Knits debut ebook presents both the knit flat (City Girl) and knit in the round (Northern City Girl) patterns. Each pattern features a different tendril technique method and a unique button. Knit one for yourself and give the other to your best friend, made as individual or similar as you like through color and bead choices.
"City Girl Cowl" is knit flat with a horizontal cast on and beaded tendrils featuring the slip 1, tendril 1, pass slipped stitch over method. Style it open on the shoulders or slouchy around your neck. Lying flat or upright, the beaded tendrils will cascade brilliantly. The custom beaded button is created with left over yarn and beads.
"Northern City Girl Cowl" is knit in the round with beaded tendrils featuring the slip 1, tendril 1, knit 2 together through the back loop method. Perfect for Northern climes where nips and chills are villainous, this cowl has an optional tightening feature to pull it close around the neck providing protection with high style.
Both tech edited advanced beginner patterns include written directions, charted directions, a glossary, pictures, and beaded button diagram. If you're new to tendrils, beads, or buttons, Eco Chic Knits has you covered. Check out one of the four You Tube videos demonstrating the s1t1psso tendril method, stranded beaded button from City Girl Cowl, s1t1k2togtbl tendril method, and I-cord beaded button from Northern City Girl Cowl.
