Knitting is witchcraft

Friday, July 7, 2017
Sometimes projects utterly blow me away. Often its elaborate lace that seemingly just works; I mean how do designers create these designs with incredible lace sections and incorporate increases without losing the integrity of the lacework? Occasionally, however, a seemingly simple design which is easy to knit will take an unexpected turn and suddenly I am marveling again at the genius of knitwear designers.

Take this for example:

This is what happens when you follow this pattern. At this point, I had cast off and all that remained was to seam the arms, two sides and sew on the buttons.

Which resulted in this: 

isn't that insane?!

and aren't knitwear designers amazing.


  1. That is so freaking clever. I love wrap style things. When you think about it, it's amazing making knots with sticks achieves anything at all, let alone something like this.

  2. Love these "after ballet" style wrap cardi's... so sweet!

  3. Pattern Instruction: Comm k row, cont in st st, inc 1st at each end of next and every foll 4(6th, 8th) row until 34 (36,38) sts, ending with inc row.
    'Confused', am I increasing one stitch at each end of row on the KNIT row or PURL row of the st st? Can you please.
