Lillet

February 16, 2019








Lillet is Baby Cocktails newest design. I thought it would be perfect for the BC Garn yarn I purchased when I was visiting Portland in December and I knit it up in no time. I love the pretty lace neckline which is a very simple repeat and fun to do. As a bonus, Baby Cocktail patterns are always full of customizing-for-fit tips. Lillet is knit top down, so once the short row back neck shaping and the lace collar are finished, it's just knit all the way down, so make sure you use a yarn you love to knit in stockinette. I finished it with the optional short-row shaped hem that is shorter in the front.

The yarn is a treasure! The color, Misty Blue has a lovely melange of pale watery blues. Semilla is easy to knit and easy on the hands with a nice bounce and an elegant rusticity. It softens nicely after a soak and I can easily wear it next to my skin. I think it's a very well priced yarn and was happy to see that Webs carries it.  It is GOTS certified organic 100% wool, and comes from Argentina. I'd use it again in a heartbeat.

I'm almost finished with Pine Creek below. The lace yoke is finished and I'm halfway through the stockinette body. I've been trying it on as I go and I cannot wait until it's finished!
