I’ve told you before that inspiration sometimes doesn’t come from me. This time, my producers contacted me and said they wanted a piece similar to this…and I jumped on board. Now I wasn’t quite sure what to do. But I knew I wanted to put the colorwork on the pockets…but how would I compensate the weight all through the wrap? Then I decided making it in pieces and seaming it would be the best option. I used traditional norwegian star motifs as the jumping off point for the colorwork section. Then I let my hook guide me…and I was THRILLED with the end result. I want to wrap up in this myself!
