St-Denis Spring Summer 2010 Issue 2

Posted on | June 16, 2010 | 12 Comments

Veronique Avery’s St-Denis Issue 2 has been released, and I’m so proud to be a part of it. My Bright Stripes Lace scarf pattern is included in the collection, and I also have a two page photo spread of inspiration photos for my design.

I’m crazy for this yarn, Nordique, it’s very knitter friendly and eco-friendly (manufactured in the United States), a sport weight wool with just the right amount of body for texture without having too much bite, so it’s soft without being limp, and I think I counted 36 colors!

And, I can’t wait to try the new St-Denis lace weight yarn, Boreale. I think the Bright Stripes scarf would look great in lace weight yarn too, as a scarf or shawl. The stitch pattern is easy to memorize but not boring to knit. The textural knit and purl base looks beautiful on both sides of the fabric and as always, the diamond motif is one of my favorites.

Veronique knit her own version of Jared Flood’s gorgeous triangle shawl, Juneberry, in Boreale.

Take a look at the ravelry page for all the designs, there are so many winners, or look here on Classic Elite’s website. This is definitely a pattern book to take you through all seasons, especially if you live in a warm climate like Los Angeles.

    i love your ‘inspiration’ photographs – they fit so well with your scarf design. just looking at them helps me imagine how the design came together for you.

    and so nice to see that sweet photo of Felix holding the flower again.

    I always (to this day ;-D) love your choices for colors. The combinations are so luminous, it is a pleasure to my painter’s eyes.
