Helen just had three of her patterns published by Classic Elite Yarns in their Spring 2011 publications. We're so proud of her!!! The patterns are beautiful. The booklets are in stock in the shop now and we have the yarn to make them too.
This is a sleeved wrap with a leaf motif knit in Classic Silk. Classic Silk is 50% cotton, 30% silk, 20% nylon. It's really soft and comes in some great shades. Tomatillo takes 7 or 8 balls of the Classic Silk.
Buttercup is a garter stitch and eyelet tank top. You knit two identical squares with Provence (100% mercerized cotton), and with the magic of seaming you end up with an adorable tank top. You'll need 2-4 skeins of Provence, depending on the size you'll need.
An easy to knit vest using Katydid (a 100% organic cotton tape yarn) that looks more complicated than it is. Impatiens will require 7-10 balls of Katydid. Of these designs Helen says, “I design things I want to wear. When I write the design I try to write a pattern that both beginner and intermediate knitters can tackle without frustration. These pieces are some of my favorites for Spring and Summer and were so fun to knit!”
