Part of the Spring 2016 Collection - Designer Heidi Gustad is a knitting, crochet and crafts designer who grew up in North Dakota. She first learned to knit at age 8 from a grandmother who saw in her a need for something to keep her busy. She’s now a Chicagoan, blogger at HandsOccupied.com and librarian who works with teens. You can keep up with her designs and more by searching your favorite social network for handsoccupied. Leucadia is designed to be timeless and elegant. It can be worn for formal events or dressed down for everyday wear. It is edged with rows of simple, reversible feather faggoting to help the finished knit lay perfectly square and to help make the most of the beautiful, undulating lace throughout. The Leucadia pattern can do double or even triple duty. Knit a single pattern of the large lace motif for a lovely scarf. Knit two repeats of the lace for a flexible wrap, or go crazy with even more lace for a giant wrap that’s perfect for warming spring weather.
