Vogue Knitting Design by Tony Limuaco - Spring/Summer 2008 »
InstructionsSleeves appeared too short as knitted and I added 4 inches. Probably should have added only two, due to the stretch in the fabric, once cuffs are attached.
I went up two needle sizes to obtain guage.
Pattern also requires crochet skills.
Type of item: Clothing
Style: Classic, Romantic, Traditional
Tilli Tomas Rock Star - Silk with beads
What was your inspiration?
A beautiful young bride - who is a sweet as she is pretty deserved this shrug and it went perfectly with her chosen dress. I first saw the design in Vogue Knitting and loved it from the beginning.
What are you most proud of?
The fact that I was able to make a project for someone that fit and was as beautiful as the design photos.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Swatch - recognize the stretch in the fabric. Also, looks more difficult than it is. Get the errata!
