Local Girl by Christopher Salas

“I went back to some basic roots in designing with stripes for this shawl, which I named LOCAL GIRL, and I encompassed a repeating lace motif which uses double yarn overs for a beautiful and open stitch pattern. The garter section is also peppered with the slightest of short rows for some visual interest in the contrasting color. Breaking away from my personal rule of “One Skein Per Color”, I used two skeins for the lace motif, and I can’t regret my decision. This project was begging for more love in the lace section, and the result of a sizeable and stylish shawl was truly amazing.

Five-Hour Baby Jacket (Franklin Variation) by Franklin Habit

“This is my adaptation, one of many, based on the excellent and legendary original Five-Hour Baby Sweater/Jacket pattern. For the history/background of that pattern, see the first column in which I plan the project.

The optional embroidery was done with Schoppell-Wolle Edition 6 yarn. Full notes on it are included in the “Fridays with Franklin” series via the pattern link.

My adaptation does not include buttonholes, but substitutes a single loop closure. This and other changes are all outlined in detail in the column itself.

Featured Yarn:
