Emily Explains: How To Wear Laodi

_MG_4754

When designing each season there is always a rush of designing that happens before the photoshoot. It is both exhilarating and exhausting. Last season, we were so lucky to have Martha Wissing, a talented designer who handled our pattern support questions at the time, knock out a few accessories. Laodi, featured in booklet #348, is a gorgeous, lace scarf knit in Cosma that is very long. In the photo shoot, Laodi is shown whimsically wrapped around the body.

But that’s not the only way to wear it! It is so long you can wear it as a shawl, perfect for a cool summer night or wrapped up many times as a scarf on a chilly fall day. Check out these pictures of Alison modeling Laodi a few different ways.

My favorite way to wear it is draped over my shoulders as if it were a shawl. How would you wear Laodi ?

Happy Making!

Emily

    I am still a relatively new knitter and I really enjoyed your running commentary on some of your projects. You inspired me to spread my wings. I still have some outstanding projects to complete and then I will be ready.
    Thank you.
