Back Cover Text:
front cover design, got its name from Hindu mythology. Dreams, fairytales, and
tales of strong, yet feminine, women created Elsebeth Lavold’s thematic
framework for what was to become The Dreamweaver
Collection. All of the designs have names from that realm, and quite a
few of them have a romantic, dreamlike quality to them as well.
The collection introduces Bambouclé,
with a fiber content providing all of the properties Elsebeth wanted, but
couldn’t get from a pure bamboo yarn. With the bouclé effect, she was excited
about the look of the yarn too. Eight of the designs are made in Bambouclé,
including the back cover sweater Malina, with its pretty lace border.
Many of them could not have been made in another yarn, at least not with a
result satisfactory to the designer.
The collection also includes a colorful striped mother-and-child
cardigan in Cable Cotton, a
Cotton Frappé T-shirt that can be very romantic or very urban, depending
on your choice of colors, and an exquisitely feminine deep V-neck sweater in
Hempathy. To name a few.
If you like the type of stylish designs with intricate details in
shapes and patterns that is the trademark of Elsebeth Lavold, chances are that
The Dreamweaver Collection contains the answer to
your knitting dreams.
