Introduction: French Girl Knits, Stella Knit-Along

Stitch Therapy Brooklyn is thrilled to offer this knit-along for the gorgeous Stella Cable and Lace Jacket from the book French Girl Knits by Kristeen Griffin-Grimes . We’re doubly blessed because Kristeen has agreed to knit along with us and offer comments as we go.

I chose this pattern because of the inspirational techniques used to combine a delicately strong Spiral stitch lace and with a classic Seed stitch to create a chic texture. The sweater is both fashionably contemporary and romantic at the same time and suits most fashion personalities.

To sign up: simply click on COMMENTS at the bottom of this post: tell me who you are and leave a link to your blog or give me your Ravelry name.

I hope you’ll join us!

Happy, knitting along,
