One of our favourite designers (oh there are so many) has recently featured Scrumptious 4ply in a stunning design for The Knitter Magazine. The pattern is featured in Issue 46 for those of you who would love to knit it up and of course, there are lots of colours to create it in on the Fyberspates website.

Scoria is a garment that is worked bottom up and in pieces. Kyoko says she normally favours circular knitting but the horizontal lace and herringbone pattern needed this flat construction. It's a delicate piece that is stylish and will suit many different body types.

Blocking scoria
The lace is worked first and then blocked before stitches are then picked up and worked upwards. The garment features a biased neckband which is worked in the round before being blocked and attached at the end. This gives a sophisticated and structured feel to the whole garment.

Kyoko told us that the inspiration comes from moving volcanic lava and contrast hard rocks around it. The aim was to create something feminine and mysterious and the texture of Scrumptious yarn and the shimmer that it brings to the garment enabled Kyoko to really push her volcanic vision to the full.

Well done Kyoko, another fab design!
