Crocosmia is a bulb in the iris family. Native to South Africa, its long graceful stems open pair after pair of delicate blossoms all summer long. Often brilliant orange, the flowers add a dash of bright color to the landscape.
Top is knit in the round from the hem up. Front and back are knit separately from the armholes up. Straps are cabled as well, and are knit extra long to join at the back of the top, instead of at the top of the shoulder.
Stitch patterns both written and charted.
18 sts and 25 rows to 4 inches (10 cm) in stockinette stitch with larger needles
I have knit and crocheted, and done various forms of embroidery and needlepoint since early grammar school. Making things with bits of colored string is so integral to my being that the few times of my life when I don't have *something* on the go feel empty, and without form.
