Interweave Crochetscene 2015 | My New Publication

Lace Cuffs 02

…My PC was dead for last two days… it was really a challenge, especially if count two my deadlines by end of this week. Many thanks to Igor, we were resurrected to life, and I’ve found that Interweave Crochetscene 2015 featured my Lace Cuffs is published and a digital edition is available here already!!

Please let me introduce…

Lace Cuffs
Add feminine flair with these delightful lace cuffs. Wear them with a sleeveless dress or let them peek from the cuffs of a long-sleeve top. (Or work them in a wool yarn for winter!) Yarn: Omega Cotton #5

I was so excited to find that magazine used my original Ruffled Border Stitch Diagram! YAY!

The only I found that since diagram was customized to match magazine style, accidentally in Rows 2 and 4 single crochet symbols was missed, but written instructions are just perfect!
