Swinging 60s Style

The new issue of Knit Now is out now! It contains not only my confessions of a love for the 60s/70s hippie fashion (gotta love flares!) but also two new designs from me. These photos are from Practical Publishing.

Lady Penelope

I love the way they’ve styled Cilla, partly because I love the model’s haircolour! The design is not complicated or even a very original concept (tube scarf with pompom ends) but I think it works really well. The idea was based on a doll I love, she’s very old and tatty but still beautiful. Her pompom scarf is actually a stocking cap style hat. I thought a scarf version might be a more wearable option these days!
