Caveat Emptor – Yeah I “used to” sell this stuff, but I also so use it….
Added: Sept 2015 – I recently was able to track down several copies of the Magazine with this pattern – not so difficult – with the “English Translation” – not so easy: if you are interested visit my e-store The exact yarn is not longer available to me.
Model 37 is such a dull name, Summer Citrus came to mind, so that’s my name and I plan to stick with it … If you are making this, I would love to hear about your experiences.
Every summer I try to do two projects, this one is from the current edition of the OnLine 2012 Spring Summer issue and uses Linie Alpha 11 my all time favorite dk mercerized cotton.
Took me almost two months to track down a supply of all the colors (two are no longer readily available in the US.) Now that my customers are taken care of there is even some left for me.
Took some time today to modify the magazine page shared on Facebook – the color names used in the US are different from the English Translation provided by OnLine so having this info where ever you shop will be something of a help.
Right now I am still in the “interviewing color combos” but I suspect that as specified is going to be it, except I may choose a softer yellow because that strong almost Sunflower Yellow is not really a good color for me. Perhaps I should make some color sticks and see what others think.
Between sizing it to fit, and the plan to lengthen the capped sleeve into at least a 3/4 sleeve (as we get older those upper arms are not nearly as nice as the model) I suspect it will not be available until NEXT summer
The pattern is sized for Medium (36-28) and Large (40-42) I need to up-size emough that after medallion it will mean pretty like writing a whole new pattern because some measurements do change and some don’t.
Now that I have seen a view of the front – I am even more interested in working on it – the drop curve should be if not flattering at least not obnoxious looking.
I had forgotten how much I like this yarn, so guess it is time to build up an inventory
Time to go dig out the Pattern design paper and start drawing. Then TV Time will be back to working on the Medallion.
Enjoy The Making
