[color=red]I'm brainstorming [/color]to come up with something comparable(sort of) to the beautiful wrap from [color=red]Holiday vogue Mag [/color]on page 93.[color=darkred] Wine colored wrap[/color], victorian style.
*** My idea(so far) What if I create a small poncho using long retangle to create a wrap look. I thought I could a similiar cable pattern and add teh beautil cabbage roses to the front.
[color=blue]What do ya'll think?[/color] do you think this will work? *** Where can I find that particular cable (I've always loved this cable!). Or what is the name of the cable pattern used.
I know I'm sacrificing a lot of the original design--but, I've looked the pattern over (although I know how to do all the stitches) I think the number of repeats for a novice would be too over whelming.
I guess I could do a provisional cast on and add lace to the bottom edge if it's needed to complete the look.
Can't wait to hear what you guys think.
***Gosh, How do you ever get good enough to do a pattern like that----does it take many years of practice or inate ability. I'm and artist and my knitting ability lags behind my vision
