Unwind Brighton

In recent and exciting news, my design 'Salt Air' has been shortlisted for the Unwind Brighton Design Competition! The entries have been narrowed down to seven and I'm lucky to be alongside six other gorgeous knits. 

Vote Here for 'Salt Air' by Fiona Alice. 

This scarf is a compilation of fond memories from my first trip to England.  I remember discovering delicious teahouses and being mesmerized by the lace collection at the Victoria & Albert Museum. I have chosen a favourite lace pattern, English Mesh Lace and have paired it with two very aptly named colours from Madelinetosh, Earl Grey and Well Water. I am venturing to England again and I hope this piece will also reflect my summer to come. This delicate and lightweight scarf is an ideal accessory for layering with summer outfits. It is a perfect portable knit to take on an oceanside adventure accompanied by that perfect cup of tea

This infinity scarf is knit with Madelinetosh's Tosh Merino Light. Finishing touches include a wee bit of crochet and seven dainty buttons. The longer version could be unbuttoned and worn as a scarf. 

My pattern even includes a smaller cowl version. I used Astrid Grey and Nectar for this sample.   

If this design is the winner it will be published in Unwind's programme. It will later be made available through Ravelry for free. Thank you for your support and votes!
