Selata is worked from the top down, with increases placed so that a squared off bottom hem emerges. To this edge I added a lacy ruffle and to that an optional beaded lace bind off!

I live in upstate New York, where the sunny season is short, leaving plenty of time to be indoors knitting. Despite holding a degree in apparel design from Cornell University, I took to knitting years ago and I haven't looked back. Currently, I'm enamored with lace and incorporating beads into knitted jewelry, so most of my designs lean in this direction. I travel often to teach these techniques and more at workshops around the country and online with Craftsy. I have a line of knitting kits, self-publish patterns and run mystery knit-alongs multiple times a year. You can find some of these designs in my book, Knockout Knits. When I'm not designing or knitting, I'm gardening, whipping up yummy feasts with my family and taking time to play! Recently, I've developed a healthy addiction to yoga and I'm determined to master a tripod headstand and handstand!
