Notes

Note on Gioiello yarn. Very dressy yarn. There is just enough amount of metallic shine in it. You can get classy looking garment out of it.

Cardi. The motif is 12sts x 20R. Knitted bottom up, separate back and 2 front pieces. Constructed together by crochet hook. Front pieces are 4 rep wide. Back is 5 reps wide. Sleeves are knitted separately, 3 reps wide. Cuffs are knitted in st sts with alternating Be sweet yarn ( 4 rows twice). Ruffles are added on the bottom of the garment with Be sweet yarn. Collar is simply knitted from picked up stitches and then were reduced in numbers all the way twice to create gathered look.

Decorative piece. Made 3 long chains with Gioiello yarn with crochet hook. Then they were simply tied like a bow creating 6 bunny ears, arranged like a flower. Then knitted 6 sts wide band in st sts with Be sweet yarn, also was arranged like a flower as a background for crocheted arrangement. Sewn together to the garment. 4 beads are finishing the look in the center of the piece.
