IVORY TOWER - JEWELLERY KNITTING KIT
DUALITY CHOKER/BRACELET KNITTING KIT
Inspired by artist Eva Gonzales, and her work 'L'alcove'. She was a female impressionist artist who was Manet's only formal pupil. She painted mainly portraits and was known for the subtle emotion and richness of detail in her work.
This kit conjures up vintage french linen sheets, dark wooden floorboards with the pale morning light shining through an attic window on faded flowers.
This design follows the old rule of thumb, ‘twice around the wrist, once around the neck’, so that once knitted to your measurements, it can be worn as a bracelet or a choker. It’s a straight piece of knitting on 4sts with regular knitting needles, so is perfect as a starter project for those wanting to experience knitting with wire.
The Eva Gonzales inspired kit comes supplied in a gorgeous silver gift bag and contains:
* 60 x genuine Swarovski® crystal beads in a painter's palette mix of smoky-quartz, khaki, blush-rose, nude, & sand-opal.
* 0.25mm ivory-enamelled copper jewellery wire
* Necklace/bracelet chain and lobster fastener in rose-gold plated finish
* Full pattern instructions
All you will need to have yourself is 2.25mm knitting needles and a sewing needle.
The pattern uses garter stitch throughout, and is suitable for an intermediate knitter.
This makes a perfect gift for knitters who are looking for something different and eye-catching to make.
