Description

I sew gowns for brides, so I have an affinity for pale colorways. I saw a bag of off-white discontinued Sevilla a few years ago and bought it for half price, because the yarn store owner said the customer who ordered it never picked it up.

It’s a tape yarn, so I used a pattern that was designed for ribbon, although I needn’t have. I held 2 strands as one to attain the suggested gauge, with a strand of silver Sulky metallic embroidery thread as a knit-along. The pattern is knit flat on straight needles, decreasing toward the cast-off point. The seam, however, is obtrusive; I think it was a hack to get the garter ridges to line up.

If I knit this again, it will be in the round on circulars with the garter ridges omitted, true circle ratio decreases, and a decorative lace ruffle edge. Then again, it would be a completely different pattern by that time.

All the flowers are handsewn from my personal stash of ribbonwork, using pure silk, rayon, and some synthetics. The colors range from white to ivory to ecru with tiny hints of green leaves. Glass pearls and Swarovski crystals add the sparkle.

I need to line this, and then it will be perfect.
