Lost Garden Tee – Knitscene Spring 2013 issue

Last week, Interweave Knitscene put out the Spring preview on their website. All the patterns are available for instant download right now and the magazine is scheduled to hit the newsstand on Januaury 22.

My new pattern in this issue is Lost Garden tee.

When I submitted the pattern proposal to Knitscene, I titled it Secret Garden. I wanted to capture and convey the shy freshness of spring garden, kind of like something that I imagined in my head when I first read the novel The Secret Garden, by Frances Hodgson Burnett.

The shaping of this tee is done entirely by fiddling with the gauge so the project is super easy, until you get to the Lace stitch pattern. In my proposal, I also called this the Garden stitch pattern.
The Lace pattern is not particularly difficult, but with the cotton yarn with very little elasticity, your hands might hurt a bit. Just remember to use nice pointy needles, and loosen up the grip on your hand that holds the yarn. Change into even bigger needle if that helps.

I’ll be posting about tips on knitting this pattern as I think of more to say.. Again, the pattern is available for purchase on Ravelry as well as Knitscene website and the magazine will be available on January 22, 2013!
