Lapwing hand knitwear design from the book Glamourie by Alice Starmore

Glamourie Designs

The Glamourie designs are based on elements of the costumes, with full instructions in a variety of sizes. As ever, it is of paramount importance to me that my instructions are clear and accurate so that the design can not only be made exactly as illustrated, but can also be modified to suit the knitter's personal requirements. The hardest part of turning the costumes into designs was only creating one from each costume. for the various possibilities kept spiraling off in fractal fashion... but every book has to end somewhere.

Since Glamourie was published I have experimented further with my ideas, the Lapwing Collar is now available as a video class patterncard kit with full instructions, the Ruffled Raven Collar is available as a patterncard kit, and the Mystic Hare Hat is part of Creative Course 1.
