My name is Arianna, I have an architecture degree, all my life I've loved to make and create things. I like to see a raw material be turned into something useful or beautiful. At the moment I'm obsessed with creating things from wool for my daughter.
I began knitting in 2010. My initial attraction to knitting was the charm of celtic pattern. Not only does the craft have a rich history on its own, but each individual braid has its own story to tell.
I love the idea that I am not just creating something beautiful to look at, but also something to be used, something that can become part of a family's history. My hope is that patterns I make will be used and loved and then passed down through generations.
All the pattern are handmade by me with my own two hands and imagination in my home in Italy.
Have something special in mind that you don't see in my shop? Custom orders are welcome.
If you are craft addict, I'm sure you can find something for your DIY projects at my blog where I share my free patterns. Free to visit it here: http://naonu.blogspot.it/
I also write a blog www.architectoftaste.com where I post about italian recipes every day. Feel free to check it out and drop me a line...it has nothing to do with selling, it's just my daily dose of positive thinking.
Pullip picot dress
She(tm)ll welcome this finer gauge knit mini dress during this summer(tm)s heat wave.
I have created this skirt for my Pullip Kaela.
I hope you enjoy it as much as you enjoyed making it!
This dress will fit up to a Small bust Obitsu.
I believe it is suitable for all levels of knitting skills.
You(tm)ll begin the picot border at the edge of skirt. Then go for the bodice.
While the dress doesn't take long to knit, you'll need a little experience in working because you have to increase and decrease to help define the body textured pattern.
You(tm)ll need to know how to keep the continuity of the pattern yourself for this. It(tm)s an easy pattern and you can't get lost! Thankfully, when you are done knitting, there(tm)s just one seam to sew up the center back!
Use 100% cotton yarn, the lightest weight you can find.
Skill level: From beginner to Intermediate.
This is a step by step knitting pattern written in standard american term, it includes written pattern. Written instruction for special stitches are noted.
You can always contact me if you have any problems with the pattern.
About 28 sts and 38 rows over 10 cm (4) with 3 mm (US 2)
