Fiona Ellis

for Nashua Handknits

NS1-1 Bee Balm

After you've acquired some knitting chops, you will probably end up making this exquisite piece. Every detail is stunning. Ellis is past mistress of integrating disparate elements into a unified whole. Look how the cables and different lace patterns set each other off at the lower edges and cuffs-- it's like music. Look at the gorgeous back view. Look how the edge cables at the front veer off to frame the V-neck. "Because the back and fronts have slightly different cable arrangements and a different number of reverse stockinette stitches at the sides, the cable patterns will not match at the shoulders," cautions Ellis. No matter. It's perfect anyway. From Nashua Style 1, Lace & Eyelet.
