Yarn on the Runway: Victoria's Secret

Victoria's Secret is probably one of the most well know fashion lines in the whole world. However, what a lot of people don't know is they they not only sell lingerie but also other clothes. I was very excited when I stumbled on this Summer 2012 crochet line. In my opinion all the pieces are vey cute. Wouldn't it be awesome to have some of the patterns to recreate the looks. It would also be nice to have the bodies of the models otherwise the clothes don't look as good =D. Check them out:

Knit Sarafan - So Darling

Most people today probably don't know what a sarafan is. I'm not sure if the style is completely outdated or it's just the word that is not used any more. Basically, a sarafan is a sundress. It's probably not everybody's cup of tea but I think it is absolutely darling. I thought that I would share the pattern with you.  You can find the original post HERE (it's all in Russian).

Empty Box - Knit (purl on the back side)
U - Slip stitch
V2 - Knit two together
Arrow up - Slip one, Knit 2 together, Pull the slipped stitch ove the the knit one.
Arrow down - Slip one, Knit one, Pull the slipped stitch over the knit one.

Yellow Cable Knit Jacket

When it comes to knitting, I think that my favorite pattern is cable knitting. I actually recently learned how to cable knit myself. I think the reason why it took me so long was it looks so complicated that I was afraid to try. However, in reality it is so easy. Keep in eye on my blog for an upcoming post on how I learned how to cable knit and how you can to. Meanwhile, here is a beautiful, richly colored, cable knit jacket that I found on the internet. It looks very cozy and warm.

Yarn on the Runway: Alberta Ferretti

"Yarn on the Runway" is going to be one of my favorite segments on this blog. I don't know about you, but I love to see how professional fashion designers are knitting and crocheting these days. Today I want to start with the designer Alberta Ferretti and show you a beautiful dress that she designed. From what I can tell, it is both crocheted and knit. Enjoy and I hope you get some ideas for your own projects!

Pattern that is Perfect For a Man's Scarf

Here is an easy knitting pattern that is perfect for a man's scarf (or a woman's too).

Here is the diagram:

l = Knit 
--- = Purl 

Cast on a multiple of 16 stitches. Knit according to the diagram. Start at the bottom right corner. When knitting the wrong side of the scarf just follow the pattern of the previous row. Repeat every 15 rows. It's just that simple!
