Heart of the Lotus

delicate, scrunched
 My newest pattern! Fabulous armwarmers with three variations: Ornate (bottom left), Delicate (top left) and Sleek (bottom right) written for both fingering and sport weight yarns.

Ornate is shown in Verdant Gryphons gorgeous merino/cashmere blend "Bugga!". See it as a project (Bugga Heart) on Ravelry.

Delicate is shown in Malabrigo "Finito". Project here.
UPDATE: Heart of the Lotus is featured in Malabrigo's Online Patterns . What a great resource!

Sleek is in madelinetosh "Pashmina". Project here.

Want the pattern? Buy it here.

sleek, worn long


two versions

I wanted to see the difference between the Sleek and Delicate versions in Pashmina, a gorgeous sport weight merino/silk/cashmere yarn. If you look closely in the bottom photo (two versions), you can see the Sleek version on the bottom half and the Delicate on the top. My friend Amy fell in love with these and had to have them, and since she preferred the Sleek version, I just ripped out the extra tier. Couldn't even tell it was gone. I want to try it with three tiers next.

I love those! I think I would make the delicate, although the sleek are tempting too!
