Design Wars Shimmer Challenge

For this Design Wars Challenge, I chose Red Heart Shimmer.  I've been a big fan of Shimmer for a while, and I've designed patterns with it before.  The yarn comes in lots of beautiful colors, and the little sparkly thread isn't itchy like it is in some other brands.  It's a nice light worsted yarn that can be used for lots of projects!

I knew I wanted to create a garment for this round of DW, and I played around with several stitch designs.  The Shimmer yarn and the openwork design of the Pacific Pullover compliment each other very well!  The Pacific Pullover is slightly oversized, and instructions are included for sizes Small through 3X, so it will fit a wide variety of body types! It has a nice drape, a lacy design, and just a bit of sparkle that makes it perfect for lots of occasions!  The model in my photos is wearing size Medium, and the top was made with #1503 Turquoise.



These 3 patterns from my shop are also great projects that you can make with Red Heart Shimmer!
