New Pattern: Roza.


Roza shawl pattern is now live :-)
Roza is an airy lace shawl/wrap featuring a beautiful flower blooms stitch pattern. Rose flowers and leaves evoke feelings of spring and summer, but this shawl would make a great accessory for any time of the year. The shawl is seamless and knitted from the provisional cast on in the middle to the edge in both directions. The joining row designed to have no offset in the pattern flow. The edges are finished by a delicate border with a picot bind off.



The pattern can be found on Ravelry and Sunny with a Chance of Knitting blog
Instructions are both, written and charted. 

The pattern will be 25% off its regular price until Sunday, July 26, 11pm Pacific time.
 
The sample shawl was knitted with 1 skein of Tussah Silk by DyeForYarn (Fingering / 4 ply,  100% Silk,  875 yards / 200 grams). 
Colorway: Rose coral lying on the shore OOAK.
Thank you so much to all my wonderful test knitters for their help and feedback and making this publication possible. 
Please check out all the gorgeous projects on Ravelry.

Roza

I am excited to show you my new design called Roza. Roza means rose in Russian. I loved working on it, both designing and knitting. I love how delicate this stole come out in DyeForYarn GmbH​ Fingering // Tussah Silk. Cannot say enough good things about this yarn. Pure joy and love :))) The velvety feel of it together with silkiness and wonderful drape make this an absolutely amazing yarn.
If you are interested in test knitting Roza, please send me a message on Ravelry. Details for this test knit and more Roza photographs an project info can be found here:

Before Sunset.


I am so happy to share with you my latest design called Before Sunset.
http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/before-sunset
The pattern will be sold at $4.00 (20% off its regular price) until Sunday, June 14, 11pm Pacific time. After that date it will be sold at its regular price of $5.00.
I loved designing and knitting this shawl and working with the Orange Flower SW merino Sport yarn. Before Sunset is an elegant shawl that features combination of texture and lace. The shawl’s body is knitted bottom-up with the stitches later picked up for the border from the yo loops used for shawl increases. It is fun and easy construction to knit. Suitable for a lazy night in or for a stroll along the shoreline, this light, yet warm shawl is perfect for all year round.

Sunshine Daisy Collection.


I am trilled to finally be able to reveal to you my new collection of knitted accessories made in collaboration with Baah Yarn. The collection is called "Sunshine Daisy" and features two shawls and a cowl.
I started working on this collection in January 2015 when I got an opportunity to create 3 designs for Baah Yarn. The yarns I used in the designs are Platinum (Fingering / 4 ply 75% Merino, 10% Cashmere, 10% Silk, 5% Metallic) and Aspen (Sport / 5 ply 75% Merino, 15% Silk, 10% Cashmere).  The yarns and the colors inspired the designs you see today. My goal and desire for this collection was to create beautiful knits that play with lace, color and texture. I wanted the designs to be fun and engaging to knit and also to become light, airy, and comfortable accessories one would love to wear. I hope you will enjoy this collection.

The 1st designs in this collection is Sunshine Daisy shawl
The pattern on Ravelry is here.


This shawl has top-down construction, half-circle shape and uses fun to knit flower stitch.  The shawl's size is very easy to customize. The shawl features striking contrasts in texture and colors. The sample was knitted in two colors, but the possibilities of colors are endless and more than 2 colors can be used. 
For my sample I used Platinum by Baah!:
 2 skeins of color 1 (colorway Fog)
 1 skein of color 2 (colorway Lemonade)

The 2nd design in this collection is Muscari shawl 
The pattern on Ravelry is here.



Muscari is a lacy and airy shawl, knitted sideways seamlessly in a fun to knit broomstick pattern. This shawl is a great beginner project and a nice relaxing project for the experienced knitters. It only takes one skein to knit this shawl, which makes for a fast project. 
For my sample I used 1 skein of Aspen by Baah! in colorway Misty.

Last, but not least, is Byzantine Gold cowl
The  pattern on Ravelry is here. 


Byzantine Gold is lacy and airy cowl, knitted in a simple rhombus motif. It is knitted flat and the edges are later joined by Kitchener stitch. This is fast and easy project. The cowl can be worn in the full width or folded in half lengthwise, which makes it reversible. 
For my sample I used 2 skeins of Platinum by Baah! in colorway Byzantine Gold.

There are more pictures of these designs and information on Ravelry. I also will be posting more about each individual design in the coming days.
I am hosting a knit-a-long for the Sunshine Daisy Collection in Sunny with a Chance of Knitting group. I hope you will join us :-) The KAL will run until July 4th. The thread for KAL is here:
