Plunge Take Two

Lindsay Lewchuk Announcements, Hems and Ends, Pattern Related, Puddles Leave a Comment

The photographic “vision” for “Take the Plunge” came early in the design process… unusually early! I hadn’t even finished designing some of the items when I knew exactly how I wanted to shoot the book. As the months rolled on and the samples were knit, washed, blocked, and ready to shoot – COVID, a gas shortage, and health issues (for both camera mom and me) kept hitting the snooze on our plans. I debated strongly about “just getting it done” locally as my Aunt and Uncle live 8 hours away (round trip). But that idea God gave me just wouldn’t shake free.

Let summer breezes waft through your stitches in Submerge. This asymmetrical drop shawl features alternating cables for a rippling effect through the design. As if lighting upon the water’s edge, butterfly dip stitches flutter through the I-cord Bind Off. To keep it simple for those wanting a shallow end dip into drops, only the drop stitches are purled making them easily recognizable throughout the work.

Adventure meets seamless knitting in Plunge. Who’d ever guess this pattern would have so much personality. What you knit belies what will be… like a Plunge in the deep end, exhale as you rise and drop the drops to reveal the ending surprise, letting cool breezes flow through. With two styles of drop cables (A and B), two neck styles (crew and scoop), two sleeves (short and sleeveless) and two lengths (crop and full) you’re sure to find a combination to suit your summer wardrobe needs.

Carrying Yarn

Our newest release, Butterfly Silk, features optional colourwork with some beautiful colour transitions! But that necessitates the question, how to carry the yarn? I know there are tons of methods out there – from the “no carrying, I cut and weave in ALL those extra ends” camp to the super sly “hide it in my knitting” camp and everything in between.
