New things are happening…

The second book that I’ve contributed to just went live today!

Hitch: Patterns Inspired by the Films of Alfred Hitchcock

My pattern, Our Gal Midge, (modeled by my excellent friend – Anne Lecrivain) is based on Barbara Bel Geddes character in the movie Vertigo.  I wanted to create a sweater that any gal could wear everyday.

This uses the Contiguous Method by SusieM  to create to look of a set-in sleeve with the ease of one-piece knitting.  It also features a special buttonband (future blog post):
