My "Sun and Sand" collection will take you on a journey to hot exotic places: places like Kara Kum desert, the ancient monuments of majestic and beautiful Samarkand city, to the shores of Mediterranean Sea, and to the colorful markets of Middle East, places from my childhood memories. "Sand Dance" skirt is my vision of dancing sands under the hot breath of a desert, and of sparkling turquoise waters of oasis, and of beautiful lapis lazuli mosaic. The skirt can be knit in any yarn weight (fingering, DK, worsted, etc...), however certain yarn weights are better suited for certain sizes but not the others. The pattern is written for: Fingering (4 ply): 6 m to 1-3T DK (8 ply): 1-3T to 6-8 years Worsted (10 ply): 2-4T to 12-14 years I have also provided a worksheet that will allow you to customize your skirt for your choice of yarn and gauge. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Cables, pick up stitches GAUGE Per 10 cm/4 inches in stockinette stitch: - Fingering/4-ply: 25 sts; DK/8ply: 22 sts; Worsted/10 ply: 19 sts.

'Follow Me' to be notified of new patterns and project updates! My name is Elena Nodel, and I am a mom to a very industrious, busy, ever curious and adventurous little girl. She is my ever present inspiration for all my creative ideas. As she grows, she becomes more and more involved in my creative work, and actually does have a say in a final look of any given project. I have a Girly Girl, thus most of my designs are very feminine. However, lately I have started working on more unisex projects. I was born and raised in Russia, a place where knitting is a part of the lifestyle. I now live in British Columbia, Canada, one of the most beautiful countries in the world. I am a trained microbiologist/immunologist , and have spent years doing scientific research. I am married to a like scientist, and his name is Peter. I am truly blessed to have such a wonderful and supportive husband, and Maya is very lucky to have a father who constantly encourages her natural curiosity, and teaches her about the world around her - she has him wrapped very tightly around her little finger! I love working with natural fibers such as cotton or wool, and always try to use them.One thing I don't like doing is seaming, therefore I knit in the round as much as possible. It is great for me and comfortable for kids. And as a result, I usually design my garments to be worked in the round from the top down. Dare to follow?
