(Post from Raisa, currently in Cusco, Peru) Our time in South America has inspired a collection of Hand Knitting Patterns, something new for RaisaAntonia.
Here is our first pattern from the collection: Arequipa - a lace hat, scarf and gloves for little girls.
These three pieces include lace detailing throughout, and are one-size-fits-all. The lace hat has a slouchy style and is made with a single lace pattern. The scarf uses two lace patterns: one that creates the ruffle edges and another for the long body of the scarf. The fingerless gloves have cabled cuffs at the top and bottom, and include lace detailing in the middle. The glove pattern is charted.
And our favorite young model was MOST helpful during our formal photo shoot!
Look for the complete LookBook of all our Cusco handknits later this month!
