summer preview



I’m so excited to see this sneak peek of the summer Interweave Knits issue. The Lace Chuppah I designed looks so pretty!

Edited to add: The pattern is now available as a PDF download from the Knitting Daily online store.

It's freakin' amazing is what it is. I really want to see a bigger picture. Will have to score a Summer IK.

It does look fantastic, Kat. Will need to get a copy too, before I leave.

Marnie must really be into food. And gambling. Hmmmmmm.........

Ha! I love that Marnie has a secret identity.

The Chuppah looks incredible. It looked big in person but that picture just makes it look glorious and HUGE!!!! Can't wait till the issue comes out.

PDX Restaurant roulette: HA! When I read this in my inbox I thought "Interesting comment from a gambling knitter".
I cant' wait to see the bigger photos too. It looks great so far, much better than it did while it was blocking on the garage floor.

Kyrie said...

I would like to know if there is an errata for this pattern before I start it. I haven't been able to find anything like that.

Thanks for the info.

kat coyle said...

Kyrie: As far as I know, there isn't an errata for the pattern.

jane said...

I am making this for my daughters fall wedding, so beautiful, I would have liked more close up pictures of lace patterns and maybe a flat photo--thanks Kat for a beautiful pattern

kat coyle said...

Jane,
I wish I had taken photos of it before I sent it to the magazine! Live and learn. It is so helpful to have reference photos for knitters. I'm so pleased to hear that you are knitting this. I knit a Chuppah for a close friend a few years ago and it really did look beautiful.

Jeanette said...

Hi Kat,

I love this pattern! I I would like to make it for a wedding gift, but the yarn costs more than I would like to spend. Can you recommend a substitution?

Thanks so much,
Jeanette

kat coyle said...

Hi Jeanette,
It's hard for me to recommend a substitution without knitting with the yarn first. Maybe you could try one of the yarns from knitpicks. Try one of their bulky or super bulky yarns, I think they have a few with alpaca content. Knit a swatch and see how you like it before you buy the quantity needed.
I'm not sure how much you'll save. I think the Plymouth Baby Alpaca Brush runs about 6.00 per ball.

Jeanette said...

The plymouth alpaca is reasonably priced. it just gets pricey when you add the glitz. It's hard actually to see the glitz in the pictures. Is it necessary to get gauge or for the lace to lay properly?

Jennie said...

Oh wow, it is gorgeous!!! Just amazing!

kat coyle said...

Jennie: thank you!

Jeanette: I posted a close up of the swatch so you can see the silver carry along yarn. The silver looks really pretty but I suppose you can make it without. You'll have to do a gauge swatch and see if it matches the gauge of the pattern.
