I have never actually done a complete 3 part series on a designer. That will tell you something about the huge portfolio of patterns Elaine Phillips has created. Today in the last installment I wanted to write about her selection of patterns for adults clothing and accessories.
As I mentioned in a previous blog Elaine Phillips has been knitting and crocheting far longer than I therefore her skills outstrip my own. In fact it seems to me that the only thing limiting Elaine Phillips is knitting or crocheting that hasn't been done yet. Given time, I'm sure she'll find the far reaches of the knitting and crocheting universe. She is really outstanding.
Men and women will find something on ABC Knitting Patterns that they will love or want to add to their wardrobe. The one pattern everyone has been talking about after reading the first installment of the blog series is the Summer Shell Skirt it is classic AND classy. This skirt pattern offers multiple sizes so no worries that you have to be built like a celery stick to wear it. The skirt style is timeless and I envision that I could be worn as a simple piece for a warm summer day or something to wear to a business meeting. It is eye catching as attested to by all the comments about it on Facebook.
The shell skirt is stunning, yes, but the sweater patterns for all seasons are amazing. Sweater patterns for both men and women are available for knitters and crocheters to be worn all seasons and available in many sizes. One point that I should make is that Elaine Phillips is a star at designing patterns for the Brioche stitch. I have not yet had time to learn Brioche but if you know how, Elaine has the patterns! I can easily share my favorite sweater patterns in both knit and crochet for both sexes.
