Rowan's Latest - My suggestions to Knit

Here are a few patterns I like from Rowan's latest pattern collection:

This one is called "Trench" and it is knitted in a yarn called Cotton Glace.

This top is called "Granite" knitted in Bamboo Tape. It could be worn with or without a tank or bandeau underneath. If you wear nothing underneath this, I suggest you use Nippies fashion tape, because they work and are awesome.

These two luxurious tops were designed by Erika Knight.

Floral Prints and Flowering Design Elements

Women should take complete advantage of floral prints and design elements because it is almost exclusively feminine. Other than the fact that men wear flower boutonnieres on their lapels for formal events, they almost never, if ever, wear floral prints or flowers in general. Ladies, lets keep this trend all to ourselves!

This dress by Alexander McQueen is number ten on Vouge's Most Wanted list for this week. I fell in love with these angelic wings right away. Paired with modern sculpted heels, such as this Martinez Valero design, you are sure to make a bold, "forget-me-not" statement.

The Baggy Cashmere Beanie

Do you like beanies? If so, do you like baggy and cashmere, beanies? If so, check out Madeline Thompson's designs. Personally, I'm not a fan of the bagginess, but beanies are cute, and definitely do the job; keep heads warm!

Note: here is a pic and article of a dress by the designer.
