The queen of modular knitting, Iris Schreier, dazzles us with a sassy cropped sweater. It all begins with casting on three stitches in the center front and “growing” it out from there. Then the sweater’s live stitches on the inside edge are worked to form a “V” neck line in a peek-a-boo lace shell stitch that resembles an open work crocheted fan stitch. Coordinating sleeves put the final touch on this fun cropped top.
Alright, trivia smarty-pants (and/or proficient users of Google)–you are correct. Cecily Keim’s “Madge” hat in Pop Goes Crochet, was inspired my Madonna’s disco look as seen on the February 2006 issue of Elle Magazine (US). In honor of Ms. M still being fab at 50, the winner of the contest is the 50th posted with the correct answer: Kelli Cook! Kelli, please e-mail your address to firstname.lastname@example.org so we can get you your book.
Thanks for playing, everyone!
