In this pretty selection of knitted clothing and components, up-and-coming dressmaker Corrina has designed knitwear items acceptable for every southern season. Cardigans and hoodies stand in for wintry weather coats, knitted tees and short-sleeve cardigans are ideal for spring, tanks and cropped cardis are cozy on hot summer time nights, and pullovers and shawls are only correct in fall.

Through her selection of light-weight yarns and ambitious shades, Corrina has set those items except the group of daily knitted clothing and proven them off as a flexible knitted southern dresser.

This was knit in worsted-weight merino wool on #8 needles. more than a few pieces because, after knitting for several inches, I decided they were narrower than I wanted.

For Lace #1 I chose Little Leaf. It is a small, simple, lovely pattern that makes a nice transition lace. Following the method for creating the mitered corners described on page 22, I picked up stitches around the Snowdrop Lace - Repeat: 8 stitches & 8 rows then switched to Lace #2, Snowdrop Lace (Chart above). Since this Lace is worked on a multiple of 8 stitches, the transition worked easily. As you can see in the photgraph on page 23, additional repeats of the pattern were added as the shawl grew outward.

As I unraveled the sweater, taking care to cut out the worn places, I realized however I used it, it would have to be knit loosely. I tried plain Garter Stitch but wanted something a bit lacier.
