Pearl Tassel {knitting}

Thursday, 25 April 2013

I finished it last week but needed to send my notes back to Libby for the test knit. And she is onto a winner, this pattern is going to be a success. It looks great, easy to wear and is a super fit. Unfortunately you will have to wait for her to publish the pattern before you can make yourself one!


I cannot tell you a lot about it, as the pattern is not yet released - but trust me is not as difficult as it looks, really - which is great. It makes it a very quick knit. 


I knitted it in Malabrigo worsted (pearl) - The colourway is great, as it goes with everything. 



Looks at the back of it, I can't get over it. It looks amazing 


In my feedback I asked Libby to consider making mittens for the pattern, that would make a very complete pattern, and guess what I have a bit of that malabrigo left over, so it would be perfect! I will of course let you know when the pattern is available and there may even be a giveaway...

  13. Super cute! It looks really tricky, so if you say it is easy it must be a great pattern. I love the soft grey colour of the yarn you have used too - very flattering!

  17. I love Malabrigo Worsted. It's so soft and just beckons a crafter. The hat from its back view looks like an intricate flower.
