The Making Spot

As knitters, we are always looking for new inspiration and 'The Making Spot' is helping to provide just that. On the website you will find 3,000 projects for you to download, 2,000 tutorials and new skills with their Masterclasses as well as an online community to share projects and information with. While purusing for inspiration this month, we spotted three Fyberspates patterns.

The first is the 'Jade Top' by Anniken Allis, a designer that has been featured here on the blog before. The top is knitted in Fyberspates Scrumptious 4ply, a silk/ merino mix and the colourway shown here is 'Water'. This lace top features clever shaping so that the centre front panels work around the neckline, and the bottom edges are slightly scalloped, giving a very neat finish and flattering fit.

Next is the 'Dulcie Lace Top' worked in Scrumptious Lace weight yarn, this time in the colourway 'Rose'.  Designed by Amanda Jones, the top has a pretty shell-like edging and sleeves, and is provided in a generous range of sizes, starting at a UK 6 and going up to a 20.

Finally, there is a beautiful cardigan knit in Scrumptious Lace in the colourway 'Midnight'. The 'Victoria Falls Cardigan' is a decadent piece, designed by Judy Furlong (whose name some of you might recognise from her contributions to the Scrumptious Collection Volume 1). This lavish knit  incorporates knitting with beads, and lacework, which together require a degree of confidence that will lead to a rewarding result.

You can find yarns for the patterns on the shop and visit the Making Spot to purchase the patterns here.
