Looking for shoulder wrap, similiar to Vogue pattern
I checked out the "New" Vogue Knit Mag and feel head of heels for the wine red shoulder wrap (victorian with lace bottom).

The probelm is that it is way over my head (for now, but not for long!! )

In the interim (post expert knitter :D ) Can anyone suggest something similiar, just not as complicated as the Vogue pattern.

If you haven't seen the new issue, search for Vogue Knitting. The Photos are stunning. It'll make you proud to be a knitter.

***Off subject --check out the new book out "Holiday Knits" Amazing--the photos are beautiful as well as the knitting.

looking for pattern similiar to vogue wrap from holiday mag
Hi All!
I'm brainstorming to come up with something comparable(sort of) to the beautiful wrap from Holiday vogue Mag on page 93. Wine colored wrap, victorian style.

*** :thinking: My idea(so far) What if I create a small poncho using long retangle to create a wrap look. I thought I could a similiar cable pattern and add teh beautil cabbage roses to the front.

What do ya'll think? do you think this will work? *** :thinking: Where can I find that particular cable (I've always loved this cable!). Or what is the name of the cable pattern used.

I know I'm sacrificing a lot of the original design--but, I've looked the pattern over (although I know how to do all the stitches) I think the number of repeats for a novice would be too over whelming.

I guess I could do a provisional cast on and add lace to the bottom edge if it's needed to complete the look.

Can't wait to hear what you guys think.

***Gosh, How do you ever get good enough to do a pattern like that----does it take many years of practice or inate ability. I'm and artist and my knitting ability lags behind my vision

Thanks,
knitbebe
