Sari Wrap

Sari Wrap

The Sari Wrap his is my first collaboration with Knotions Magazine. The suggested themes in the call for submission were India and Garter Stitch.

My inspiration came from the colorful and ethereal saris from India. Saris are probably one of the most versatile outfits, as one size almost fits all and can be used practically all year around.

Since silk is the usual fiber used in their fabrics, I suggested a combination of Mohair-Silk to enhance the lightness and to allow enough dimension to be draped in different shapes. The piece is knitted in garter stitch with a needle size large enough to enhance this vaporous effect.

A distinctive feature of this piece is the color combination. Mohair-Silk gives a subtle glossy effect and texture that smooths the transition between the reddish and golden colors that you can see in this typical outfit. As a contrast in color and texture, black narrow stripes and a crab stitch finish in Alpaca-Silk are added as a nod to the kohl eyeliner.

The Sari Wrap pattern is available in Knotions and Raverly. In Ravelry you will also see several pictures of different ways of how to wear it. This is really an easy to make and with some imagination you can use all your mohair left overs !!! As with my previous suggestions (Mestral Purse & Top) , leave some free room in your stash for new goodies!!!.

Japanese Vest

Japanese Vest

This Japanese Vest is made out of 4 rectangles of fabric surrounded by a crochet ending. You can easily modify the pattern to adapt the shape while you are adding the crochet part. To transition from fabric to crochet I have used a yarn needle and sew a blanket stitch all around.

It is up to you if you want to use leftover fabric or just buy a new one. In this case, the total needed will depend on the width of the fabric and how you want the print design to show. (i.e for size S and a 120 cm (48”) width fabric, you may only need 25 cm (10”)

Before cutting the fabric, think about how you would like to see the print design once the vest is finished. You will be able to decide at the end what goes up-down and right-left, but sometimes complex motifs may need planning ahead.

I recommend to customize the size of the mid-front crochet rectangles and the seams once you have finished the shoulders. The pictures may give you an idea, but it will very much depend on your size and preferences.

The Japanese Vest pattern is already available in Ravelry

Japanese Vest:

Japanese Vest:

El Japanese Vest está hecho de 4 rectángulos de tela rodeados de ganchillo. Esta parte de ganchillo facilita adaptar la forma del patrón a tu talla o figura. Para ello, te recomiendo personalizar el tamaño de los rectángulos de ganchillo de la parte delantera y de los laterales una vez finalizadas los hombros.

Para pasar del tejido al ganchillo he bordado un punto “festón”.

Veréis que la cantidad de tejido dependerá del diseño del estampado, pero con 25 cm de una tela de 120 cm de ancho podriais tener suficiente.

El patrón del Japanese Vest ya está disponible en Ravelry (de momento solo en Inglés)

Japanese Vest

Japanese Vest

El Japanese Vest està fet de 4 rectangles de tela envoltats de ganxet. La part de ganxet permet adaptar la forma del patró fàcilment a la vostra mida. Per això, et recomano ajustar la mida dels rectangles de ganxet de la part del davant i dels laterals un cop acabades les espatlles.

Per passar del teixit al ganxet he brodat un punt “festó”.

Veureu que la quantitat de teixit dependrà del disseny de l’estampat, però amb 25 cm d’una tela de 120 cm d’amplada en podeu tenir prou.

El Patró del Japanese Vest està ja disponible a Ravelry (de moment nomes en anglès)
