Army of Knitters' NEW Summer 2011 Collection
Nell is the perfect little cardi to wear over a pretty Summer dress. Worked from the bottom up, Nell starts with a dramatic lace border, topped in an eyelet row through which to thread a lightweight ribbon at the front. The elbow length sleeves have the same lacy border and ribbon trim to complement the body.
Frieda is a lightweight and dreamily soft scarf which can also be worn as a shawl. The simple to remember lace pattern adds just enough detail to keep the knitting interesting and the layered ruffles and ribbon bows add a romantically girly touch.
And Hattie is a sexy dress worked in the round from the bottom up that was inspired by a Victorian era nightgown. Bands of lace give the fabric textural interest while delicate satin ribbons are threaded through eyelets and tied into pretty bows which along with lace shoulder straps and button placket finish this piece with just the right amount of sweet girlishness.
Inspired by Victorian era underskirts Agnes is worked from the top down. Cables border a ribbed section at the front, and layers of flirty, ruffles at the back to give a bustle effect. Designed to be worn with the matching Violet corset, Agnes looks fabulous dressed up or down, especially if you have a wiggle in your walk.
Flora is a double V-neck dress worked bottom up and in the round. The large scale lace trim at the bottom edge is also inspired by Victorian era undergarments.
