In 8 years of designing I became brave enough to start my own line of designs under “Nadya’s Designs”.
I have learned a lot from working with number of publishers, and since quite a few ideas have been rotating in my head, I just could not ignore them.
My new line begins with Gem Hill, the mini collection of three garment designs, and the first one is Orlets Pullover: over-sized cozy sweater design, generously supported by UniversalYarns, and edited by Tian Connaughton, who patiently held my writing hand through the process of recalculations and polishing off my pattern.
ORLETS is the Russian name for Rhodonite mineral. The meaning of this word is “belonging to eagle”. People who live in Ural Mountains quite often find these pink stones in the eagle nests. That is how this name was born.
Design construction: the body is worked flat in pieces, then sewn at shoulders. Sleeves and pockets are worked from picked up stitches flat, and then seamed. Collar is worked in the round from picked up stitches up.
The combination of three different Rib stitch pattern, comfortable fit and look, embracing collar and hidden in the side seams pockets are the features of Orlets Pullover. It could be styled with lace skirt and high heal boots, or your favorite jeans and sneakers, depending on your daily activity or evening plans.
Gem Hill collection was inspired by my homeland in the Urals, full of beautiful lakes, forests and gems.
Gem Hill collection contains surprise pattern, which will be removed as soon as the third pattern is up for sale. Happy knitting to everyone!
