New Design and a Blog Tour

NachtfalterStarBlueI’m pretty sure you know that I’ve been counting down to the release of a new pattern during the last few weeks. (Hint: Look at the post below this one…)

And today’s the day! Everything is finished and the fabulous Holla Knits Spring/Summer Collection has been revealed. I’m really proud to be part of this – I love the Holla Knits style and have submitted several times before finally getting in with my Nachtfalter sleeveless top.

Nachtfalter (German for ‘moth’ or ‘nightflying butterfly’) is a fun color block top with a bold lace pattern, ribbed and cabled bottom and cute, short cap sleeves. The lace always reminds me more of moths than its namesake honey bees – hence the tongue-breaking name. I’m glad to wear a Nachtfalter, but a moth? I don’t want to even think of moths in connection with my knitwear. Shoo! Bad moth!

In this top you have everything you can ask for in your knitting. Cables? Check. Ribbing? Check? In the round? Check. Worked flat? Check. Lace? Check.

There is virtually no shaping and almost no finishing to be done, while you’re allowed to play around with different yarns and to combine your favourite colors. Nachtfalter is a perfect summer knit. Wear it over tank top, flirty skirt and heels for a night on the town. Or head out to the beach in slim capris and flip-flops.

Starting tomorrow there’ll be a blog tour featuring the designers and yarnies who contributed to the collection. Lots of info about the patterns and – of course – pattern and yarn giveaways.
