The Sophia Poncho, Shawl or Scarf (Longer size) is a perfect addition to any wardrobe with the unique crochet that has a wired look.  Part of my Wired to the Past Collection I am working on this year.  This design can be buttoned as a poncho, shawl or a large scarf and is made with  beautiful hand painted merino wool.  There will be other colours soon to add to your wardrobe. The longer style shown here is great for all sizes see my blog or http://www.valeriebaberdesigns.etsy.com for more styles.  The regular size available as well fits most large to small sizes as you button where you need in the crochet pattern to fit your size.  You can view the regular size on my blog or on my Etsy store link above.

For the poncho style button along the edge of the other side as shown.  For the longer version leave a loose section between each button so it fits as shown. For the scarf style I made one twist with the scarf so the buttons end up on the inside of the scarf and buttoned it to the other side moving the “fabric” where I wanted it to sit. On the shawl you can button where you like to get the look you want. A unique piece designed and hand made by myself just for you.

Sophia means wisdom a beautiful part of every woman. The Sophia Collection is my “Wired to the Past” collection which brings styles and design from the past with a contemporary edge where I will add a “wired” look with yarn on each of them showing how the past is directly connected to the present and future.

Elegant Lace Poncho – Architectural Inspiration

The Elegant Lace Poncho style garment with an Architectural Inspiration is one of my latest creations.  As I continue to expand my inspiration from Architectural features and buildings of the past I keep wanting to try bigger and bigger pieces.  Each time I finish a new piece I feel new ways to create the next step to a more detailed and unique design.

I wanted to try designing various Rose Window style crochet pieces and fit them together in an asymmetrical way to reminisce the effect of the many years it takes to design these extrodinary buildings and the various Artist, skilled and talented Architects, Designers and those who made these amazing works of Art.  To portray this effect I used the various styles of Rose Windows and complete the design with a different look on every side of the garment to show how different designers over the vast amount of years would change the design depending on what their inspiration was and yet when put together it flows well.

This Architectural Inspiration journey is constantly evolving in my mind.  I will be starting a more in depth project soon.
