Ici Paris Beret – KAL starting 1st December 2011

30 Nov

Today, the European Fiber Network (EFN) released my latest pattern, the Ici Paris Beret.

The pattern is available in both English and French!

They are organising a KAL for it starting tomorrow, 1st December. Here is the description from the pattern page:

Our December designer was inspired by her native home of Paris. And what could better call to mind this most romantic of European capitals than a beret!

In winter the Parisian sky is almost always grey, captured eloquently by the soft shades in this stunning yarn.
The iconic symbol of Paris, the Eiffel Tower, is reflected in the pattern of the whimsical lace.

Clever crown decreases are beautifully incorporated into the lace. The X’s and O’s circling the cabled brim are a nod to Corinne’s partner and the English custom of signing love letters with symbols for hugs and kisses.

This traditional, yet whimsical hat, even ties in to Corinne’s current home, Germany, by using the country’s most famous sock yarn, Wollmeise.

Come with us on a jaunt to Paris, and knit the Ici Paris Beret as a sentimental holiday gift or to stuff your own stocking!

New Pattern coming soon, and a KAL!

22 Nov

I can’t reveal much right now as this has to stay secret until it’s published, but I should have a new pattern released on 1st December for which a KAL will be organised…

What I can say is that it uses less than a 100g skein of sock yarn and that I used this yummy “Feldmäuschen” colourway of Wollmeise sock yarn for it:

So, get your yarn ready and keep your eyes open for more info 🙂
