Debbie Bliss Alpaca/Silk with Noro Lotus
I wanted something girly to throw on my shoulders that wouldn't fall off and didn't have sleeves, so I came up with the idea of a giant bow ponchette/wrap thingy. I simply knitted up the alpaca/silk in a long 18x42 inch rectangle, working short rows at the ends so I could flap my elbows. Seamed the ends together to make the body. I then crocheted the top edge with the Noro to tighten up the shoulders a bit before knitting another rectangle for the center. I seamed that rectangle over the center body seam and voila!
Thanks, Entrelac, for the photography!
And here's a close-up of my Day of the Dead skirt that I made last year. "Dem bones, dem bones......."
