Michelle Miller has been part of the IDP program from the very beginning – her Knitting Project Bag has been one of our most popular patterns! I’ve known Michelle for several years now and last summer we discussed doing a collection of her beautiful lace work. She came up with a gorgeous proposal and the result is the stunning Ballerinas in Pink collection!
Michelle was inspired by the artist Degas’s series of impressionistic paintings from the turn of the century. (see some of the artwork here). Using a similar color palette, all of Michelle’s designers are stunningly beautiful and a wonderful addition to any lace lover’s pattern collection.
If you prefer more traditional triangle shawls, you can ‘t go wrong with the lovely top down Chasse, with its knit on border (no binding off hundreds of stitches!)
If you prefer large wraps, check out Adiago, which combines lace with small cables to create a wonderful piece to wrap all around yourself.
And Plie, a small wrap/scarf, knit sideways with lovely edging details.
As always with our exclusive collections, you can get these patterns 3 ways – you can buy just the patterns a la cart (click on the photos above to take you directly to the pattern page) or as a complete eBook or even as a beautiful full color book to hold in your hands (currently 40% off during Book Sale)! Be sure to check out Michelle’s other patterns on the site (including another gorgeous eBook, Fickle Knitter Design Vol. 1: Leaves eBook) as well as on her website!
