Vilnis is a Latvian word for “wave.” Short rows create the asymmetrical lines and waving stitch pattern. The top has a boxy silhouette that flatters every figure.

2. Sonoran Shrug, Crochetscene 2017

Classic granny crochet stitches and filet crochet meet in a modern bohemian-style cardigan. The loopy fringe is an absolute must. The pattern is designed for gratification: Each row is shorter than the previous one.

3. Coldwave Sweater Crochetscene 2014

Worked seamlessly from the bottom up, this futuristic design is crocheted in the round. The sleeves are crocheted separately and added at the bustline before finishing the sweater. Ribbing at the neck and hems holds it all together. Make it fitted or oversized, then wear it up or off one shoulder.

4. Convergence Top Interweave Crochet Spring 2014

This top has figure-flattering, converging lines highlighted by a slow-striping yarn. Short rows create the asymmetrical rows in the body; filet crochet adds interest to the short drop sleeves.

5. Rudens Scarf Interweave Crochet Fall 2013

Latvian landscapes of rudens, a Latvian word for “autumn,” inspired this scarf worked in a wavy stitch pattern. This symmetrical scarf is started in the middle and worked out toward both ends. The outer leaf pattern is extended at the very end to form a triangular edge that mimics the falling of leaves.

Happy Stitching!
