The latest addition to the Ita Vero Spring/Summer ’14 Collection is the Infanta Scarf. The lace scarf makes use of similar stitches as the previous Mantilla Scarf, but I had wanted to create more of a fan shaped silhouette.
In the initial sketches, I had envisioned a romantic, dramatic piece, complete with cascading fringe. The fringe was edited away since it turned out to be too heavy and not well suited for the spring/summer seasons.
As you can tell, I have a “chicken scratch” sketch style. I tend to do quick 10 second illustrations/notes as I prefer a more tactile, hands-on approach.
However, I love doing little rough sketches to flesh out ideas or variations of an idea I have to get to the final design.
Endless hours of knitting and crocheting later, the final result:
