Welcome, everyone, to today’s stop of the Holla Knits blog tour! Allyson has put together a fantastic collection this spring – I for sure will be casting on my own Lady Bat (upper left) as soon as I manage to decide if I’d rather go for a neutral greyish pink (pinkish grey?) or something more bold.
It’s the first time I participate in the tour, so I had a hard time deciding what to post today… a review of the collection or my pattern? Everything about that is in the Holla Knits blog already. Insights into my design process? Er. I’m afraid I don’t quite remember how I came up with Nachtfalter. Gloating about how great it is to be part of a Holla Knits collection (it is, you know)? Hardly interesting.
Recently I discovered Polyvore and promptly reverted to a childhood stage of dressing up dolls. I spent far too much time there, putting together style sets. So why not show you two ways I’d style Nachtfalter?
1. Nachtfalter on the Beach
2. Nachtfalter goes to Town
Now, the solid colored Nachtfalter (knitted in masi|Bottoms Up) is a whole different kind of butterfly! The moment I saw the gorgeous color I knew: This had to be a statement piece, styled with bold contrasting purple accessories and a flirty, black brocade skirt for a night on the town, drinking fancy cocktails and having far too much fun.
