SWAN LAKE & LILY STOLE Pattern Released!

After 1800 hours of work, the pattern Swan Lake & Lily Stole was completed and available for sale on October 1. It is completely original and written from scratch, and was a complicated journey to make it a simpler knit. There is nothing really like it, and it includes thorough instructions and tips for lace knitting, and various ways to tie or wear this beautiful design.

You can view it on my website:


More patterns are to come within the next months, some simpler and some more complicated, from lace to socks, baby items, and sweaters, etc. If you are curious, you can read some of my design comments and background under the Designer link on any of the pages. Feel free to write me under the Contact tab is you have any questions!

It is totally gorgeous and really addicting knitting, but for at least an intermediate lace knitter.

Best blessings,

Swan Lake & Lily Stole pattern is released!!!

My flagship pattern, Swan Lake & Lily Stole is available as a downloadable pdf. on my website:


The feedback has been wonderful! It took about 1800 hours as there is movement within several sections at the same time in the pattern, which required intense work. It was also reworked to simplify it to lace knitting with plain purl back rows to make it easier for the knitter, and still keep the integrity of the design.

Everything is written from scratch and original, (though I am sure the bias mesh exists as it is staggered pairs of YO's and decreases), and the pattern is hopefully mistake proof.

You can email me at elationrelation@aol.com with questions or comments.
I hope you like it as people say it is incredible.

More is coming in short order, and they wil be just as beautiful, but easier knits at lower price points.

Swan Lake & Lily Stole is a timeless original!
