Clara Sweater

I just finished the sample for my latest design, the Clara Sweater!


The Clara Sweater is inspired by the Art Deco architecture and bold fashion of the 1920's.
It is a cap sleeve slightly cropped sweater with a scoop neckline and exaggerated keyhole back. The lace pattern has eyelet columns on the cap sleeves and yoke of the sweater and an eyelet diamond pattern on the lower body of the sweater. The sweater is knit in one piece and the cap sleeves are created by raglan shaping. It looks perfect knit with Knit Picks Stroll Sock Yarn in Basalt Heather.

I'm currently looking for test knitters, if you're interested, post your e-mail in the comments or message me at AshleyEFay@gmail.com, or on Ravelry

So cute!! If I wasn't already rammed to the gills with knitting (including other test knits), I'd offer. Looks like a great design!

Love the new sweater. Very pretty. I may be able to test knit, but I'd have to get details on yarn and sizing first, of course. Is this going to be a knit picks design? I am also designing for them too. Okay, could you email me the details on the sweater and I can then let you know if I can. (rilanaATgmailDOTcom)
