Next up is the 'Fowey' waist coat. Fowey is a local seaside town near where we live in Cornwall. This short waist coat has a curved short row hem at the back, which is very popular at the moment.
Around the hem and neckline it has a elongated crossed stitch like those seen in my 'Mar Menor' shawl. Because of the thickness of the yarn, this is a very quick knit. I can't remember which of my lovely knitters knitted this design. Or did I knit it myself? I don't remember. Which I think is a sign that I've done way, way too many new designs this year.
And lastly, the 'Crossover Loop'. This time I combined elongated, crossed stitches and short rows to create a fun infinity scarf.
Elongated, crossed stitches work really well with variegated ayrn and they're easy to work. Check out my video tutorial for how to work the crossed stitches in the 'Crossover Loop', the 'Fowey Waistcoat' and my 'Mar Menor' shawl.
The scarf is knitted as a rectangle then the short ends are sewn together ot create an infinity scarf. Wear it once around your neck as a long loop or wrap it around twice as seen in the photo for a warm scarf.
