Lake Breeze Tank

Lake Breeze Tank

Lindsay Lewchuk Garments, Patterns

On the yacht or lunch in the city, this Lake Breeze Tank is designed to accentuate all your best curves. Just as a breeze highlights waves on the lake, so the negative ease flatters every woman’s form. Diagonal lines meet center mast drawing attention to the natural waist. At this point, the pattern mirrors drawing the diagonal lines up and away towards the shoulders. The unique stepped neckline draws the eye up towards your face. Special Notes:

Off the Cuff

Off the Cuff

Lindsay Lewchuk Cowls, Patterns

My sister inspired me to design a beginner pattern. She has crocheted for years and was leery at trying her hand at knitting, so I decided to tempt her beyond her doubts. I created a simple pattern that required only knit, purl, and a button opening, in her favorite color, blue. To ensure her success I included written directions as well as a chart. Furthermore, I sent this pattern off to be tech edited to make certain it would be as universally understood as possible. As to the specifics behind the “Off the Cuff” design, I find cuffs on garments rather interesting as they intentional expose of the wrong side of a work. The seed stitch alters to emulate the …

Black Willow Cowl & Scarf

Black Willow Cowl & Scarf

Lindsay Lewchuk Cowls, Men, Patterns, Scarves

Recuperating after a treatment, I looked out the window and became enthralled with a majestic old black willow tree. The textures in the bark and the magnitude of the trunk drew me in. Determined to capture and recreate what I saw in yarn, I created 6 mini design elements, which I then mixed and mingled on the knitting needles until the texture evoked that same majesty as the magnificent specimen God placed in front of me. As a final nod to the sparkling sunset haloing the massive tree, beads were added to the edges and cables. Special Notes:
