"DesiLoop", pronounced "They See" loop, was created by SSK in 2011. She is originally from India and likes to call herself “A Student of Life”. She is a self-taught knit and crochet designer who is constantly on the lookout for new techniques, ideas, and inspirations. She has been creating stuff for as long as she can remember. Her designs have also been featured in newsstand and online magazines like Knitty, Tangled, YarnForward, & Inside Crochet. Off late she is growing more and more obsessed with seamless projects and doesn't need an excuse to start one.
SSK also loves sewing, embroidery and all things fabric. She is now working on drafting her perfect fit basic patterns so that she can design all kinds of garments to sew.
'Dhari' is Hindi for 'Stripe' and is named after my orignal idea for this
design which was published in YarnForward Magazine (UK). The pattern was written to be knit bottom-up.
Stripey was born out of necessity more than anything else. My son was growing out of his clothes too fast and it was pretty cold. So I took out two shades of yarn from my stash and whipped up this in a day. I wrote in enough ease and knit extra length, so that he could use the sweater for a couple of more seasons.
Some design features include:
Ever popular stripes pattern. Instructions are given for two colour stripes, however, can be easily worked in one or more than two colours as desired
Two versions of button band along right raglan slope. One unisex version and a second crocheted lace version
Short row neck to give better fit
Comfortable pockets that can act as muffs for little hands
Orange & Black sample is the unisex version
Blue shades (Ocean Spray and Spruce) sample is the girl button band version
17sts and 26rows/rounds per 4 inches
400 yards of Worsted weight
