Fall collection 2017, Heart opening

Selu’s Prelude

I’ve spent a great amount of time on this piece. It looks simple, but I’m telling You, I have undo and redo it so many times. Especially the armhole and the neckline. But I really love the result of the first piece of the Fall collection 2017.

I am not such a big fan of wool, but this organic wool is an exception. I love the thickness of this one. Also the warm feeling that I get. In fact, I’m wearing it right now 😂 I got these organic yarn since last winter from Stoff & Stil. I used 2 different colors on this top because I have no idea how much yarn I would need to complete this design. I thought it would look weird, but it’s actually nice. 😍 don’t You think?

I want to make more pieces with bulky cotton though. I’m not sure how warm it gives, but I would like to try it out. So I have been searching all day long for bulky cotton yarn and found a nice yarn that one of my beloved crochet fellow recommended me Billow from KnitPicks but they do not ship to Germany. So I found another company that ship to where I live, it’s Yarn & Colors Fabulous but it’s not 100% cotton. It’s 50/50 cotton/Acrylic. I am not a fan of Acrylic at all. But I will give it a try and see how I feel about it, if You have any suggestion of bulky cotton yarn that You like, feel free to leave Your word in the comment below.

I was intended to work on the written pattern and video tutorial of this top today. But in reality, I have spent over 10 hours fixing this blog and finally it’s working. So I will start to edit the video tutorial for my exclusive Patron only and written pattern to send out to my Patrons to test it, hopefully tomorrow evening.

OMG! Again 2:25am! Time is flying without mercy..

Good night!
