Those of you who attended the event must understand how much I hate those jokers from the weather channel! It was freezing! However I fought my way through the cold by jumping from barn to barn and fondling some precious. Also don't forget the scenery--it's breathtaking!
Even though the skirt didn't make it to Rhinebeck it still deserves to be shown :)
It was crochet from the top down. I used 1mm hook and started with 330 dc working back and forth increasing evenly every 5th row to 350 for the yoke, finishing the last couple of rows in the round. It created the slit for the closure. For the next row I worked 1dc ch1 into each dc (700 st in total) to create the fuller body of the skirt. Kept on working in filet till the desired length (19"). For the closure I used 5 round buttons. The bottom of the skirt was embellished with the ribbon weaved in between dc into ch1 space.
The skirt and the cardigan are modeled by my friend Gunel.
