Weightless Tunisian Stole

Pattern for this design called "Weightless" is available now! You can see it in my new crochet pattern shop. It requires 2.5 balls of a lightweight mohair-silk blend. I used SR Kertzer's Ovation, which is discontinued, but there are several other similar yarns available. The best known is probably Rowan Kidsilk Haze.

This Tunisian wrap won Third Prize in CGOA's annual Design Contest. A big thank you to Leisure Arts, sponsor of the cash prize! I'm very proud, and kind of dazed because I didn't start out expecting that I would enter it this year.

With this blog post I'm trying out a feature in Flickr. I just spotted this photo in the CGOA Flickr Group and I noticed that Flickr offers the option of composing a blog post with photo, and then I can have it posted straight to my blog.

More soon! Am currently loading more pattern PDF's into the pattern shop of my new website!

  5. It is so beautiful in person, and it really is practically weightless! I already have yarn, now I'm just waiting for the pattern. Which is fine, since I have another project on the hook that I need to finish first.

  6. Thanks so much! And thanks for 'weighing in' on Weightless, Amy :-)

    I can report now that I like the instant blog-it feature in Flickr. Flickr added the frame around the photo, the clickable links, and the photographer's name. It was so easy.

    This stole is amazing! Everytime someone says that Tunisian is heavy, thick, stiff,...I'll just send them to this picture!
    Can't wait for the pattern.
