Here is a sneak preview of Kristin's newest design for Tilli Tomas. The pattern will debut at TNNA San Diego. Please stop by Tilli Tomas' booth (#2406-2407) along the left back wall. On display in their booth, you can see sample garments for Kristin's Flower Back Top, Swag Sweater (sleeveless and the NEW never before seen long sleeved version!), and the NEW Lacy Kimono in Simply Heaven and Asteroid.
Kristin's Lace Kimono uses a very simple garter stitch based lace pattern and is worked from cuff to cuff in Simply Heaven, a bulky weight pure spun silk that works up really fast. The wide bands are worked up in Asteroid, which is the same weight as Simply Heaven, only it has beautiful glass beads strung along with the pure spun silk yarn. This is an elegant sweater - it drapes as only blocked-lace silk can, and the sparkle of the beads is enchanting.
The Lace Kimono pattern and the yarn & pattern kit will both be available here after the TNNA show in San Diego.
