Welcome to Ilga Leja Handknit Design!
The river has been a powerful and evocative theme for me. So I am thrilled to introduce my new collection for 2013: River Seasons.
There will be 6 new patterns, each one exploring a different view of the river. There will be shawls, a capelet, a vest, and other feminine pieces. They will feature both textured and lace knitting as well as various constructions.
The patterns are all at the Intermediate Skill Level.
I will be releasing the patterns one at a time, one each month. The first two patterns in the collection are:
All five patterns for this series are now available. They can be purchased individually or as a collection here: Five--More--Easy Pieces.
These are "easy pieces", each using one or two skeins of a self-striping yarn, to create pieces of unique beauty..
Begin to browse my designs on the Design Collections page. There you will find my current collections of handknitting patterns, featuring lace knitting, intriguing stitch patterns, and unique construction.
Yarns are also available for many of my patterns and are available for purchase through the PayPal shopping cart.
FREE shipping on all orders over $199.00 CAD!
Enjoy your visit!
