In fact, Marly designed the most beautiful garments in both books, in my humble opinion. Her Panema wrap sweater graces the cover of Perfectly Plus.
Curvy Crochet, a booklet with eight cute crocheted designs in larger sizes. I'm going to write more about this book soon. But for today I wanted to share one of her newest designs, the Lacey Dream.
This attractive vest comes in sizes from 35.5 to 63.5 - sizing that should make us all dance in the streets! Marly describes the design as follows:
Wonderful little addition to any wardrobe, this cardigan is a perfect layering piece. The delicate lace stitch with the large attached ribbed collar makes this cardigan look sophisticated without being stuffy :-)I sure love Marly's Lacey Dream. I can envision this gracing my wardrobe, especially if I added some waist shaping. This design would be attractive on any plus-size figure. Buy the Lacey Dream from Ravelry.
I designed the Lacey Dream to showcase the beautiful Yak and Bamboo blend yarn by Bijou Basin Ranch while running the yarn tasting booth at Vogue Knitting Live. Many of you asked me for the pattern so here it is ;-) I hope you enjoy yours as much as I LOVE mine!
