Pyjama Case, Knitting issue 87, March 2011

All’s been a bit quiet on the blog front for what seems like quite a while now. That’s because I’ve been busy with the final amendments to the book , ( more on that next week )  more work for the lovely folk at ‘Knitting’ magazine as well as making some changes to the website. I’m hoping that all that will be ready to upload next week but I’m also in the midst of packing to move house – again.

My latest published design is in the March issue ( no 87 ) of ‘Knitting’. It’s a pretty pyjama case knitted in Knitshop‘s gorgeous Mulberry Silk / Merino Wool. This DK weight yarn is a 50/50 blend and has a very soft twist which actually makes it more like roving in terms of it’s construction and the silk content gives each of the colours has a wonderfully lustrous quality. The case combines a beaded rib structure dotted with tiny ‘nupps’ and a central panel of twist stitches and eyelets.I’ve used 2 different colours of beads ( from  my lovely friends at The Little Bead Shop ) which echo the colour of the yarn.

The case is just the right size for storing your favourite pair of PJs or even your prettiest nightie and the front opening is finished off with 4 small knitted buttons.

Every boudoir should have one!
