Amia by Jennifer Wood

Gradient bliss! This beautiful shawl has a nice rhythmic lace pattern that is kept interesting with the change of colors.

The arrangement of stitches creates a wavy effect in the fabric and a diagonal stair step border between the color changes.

The combination of the stitch pattern and pretty gradient generate a simply elegant shawl.

I used Julie Asselin’s beautiful gradient for the shawl, a pure pleasure to work with. Amia means beloved and this has definitely become my beloved shawl!

Introducing Frances

Frances by Jennifer Wood

Such a fun knit! This design is one of those that is much simpler to knit than appears. It is an easily learned cable pattern mixed with simple eyelet stitch.

Frances by Jennifer Wood

 

People will think you are a knitting genius when they see your work! It is a dropped shoulder worked from the top down with positive ease and fitted sleeves to make a comfortable, flattering fit.

Frances by Jennifer Wood

 

I really like the name Frances but could not think not think of a way to connect “free man” the meaning of the name to the sweater. But decided to go with it anyway because somehow it seems fitting.

Ella by Jennifer Wood

Oh my, a new favorite! Ella is a graceful feminine cardigan that combines lace and cables to delight the eyes and the craft.

Ella by Jennifer Wood

Ella means fairy maiden, this one is definitely pretty enough to adorn a fairy maiden.

Ella by Jennifer Wood

This cropped cardigan perfect for wearing over your spring dresses or a tank and pants. Ella is not a quick knit but the result of a beautiful cardigan is so worth it!

Introducing Alda

Alda by Jennifer Wood

This simple garter stitch shawl is a mediation on short rows.

The short row placing gives it a unique curved shape that is perfect for wrapping around the shoulders.

And the pretty lace edging adds the perfect detail. The short rows and lace edging add enough speciality to the garter stitch to make this a very enjoyable knit.

Alda by Jennifer Wood

 

Alda is an old german name meaning prosperous. I thought it a fitting name for the shawl; the garter stitch is a very old stitch and I used the german short row method.

And of course you feel prosperous with your lovely shawl wrapped around your shoulders. This shawl has a nice peaceful rhythm to it. It is such a pleasure to knit, I hope you enjoy it also!
