Who’s not grumpy in her Tivoli?

It’s me! It’s me!


I like to think of these as “night before” and “morning after” :).

But wait! The one on the left is not a Tivoli at all! It has picots all around the edges! Why, it’s a Picovoli! (picot + Tivoli = Picovoli. Am I a dork or what?)

And so, standardization is complete, sizes are added, gauge is constant throughout (old confusing Tivoli patterns are gone), picots are optional, and you can find the pattern HERE.

Edited to add: more Picovoli info is available here – schematics, tables, close-ups, etc.

    Okay, okay, everything else by the wayside, I need a Tivoli. BTW, the curtains in the background look to be hung PERFECTLY.

    I LOVE this top. It’s got me doing sit-ups during knitting breaks!

    I was looking in your gallery earlier, and just wanted to say what a beautiful job you did on the vintage pink cardigan. Such a classic design and you really did it justice with your knitting and your finishing technique.

    Hello Kathy,

    Congratulations and thanks for all your work on that pattern. It looks great on you both formal and casual. Will definitely be knitting this one.

    I can’t reach the magknits site to take a look at the standardized pattern, but I already started the 31″ from before and I’m loving it! Thanks so much for doing all this work.

    I mean this in the least lesbian way possible…You’re a pretty hot piece of knitting ass. Go on with your bad self. I might have to add Picovoli to my Fall Knitting List

    Congrats on publishing in MagKnits. I’m excited to see what else you have up your sleeves.

    Oh, and I LOL with the before and after pics.

    Congratulations! I’m finishing Tivoli this weekend, and starting Picovoli right away. You and the Picovoli look smashing, marvelous, and the darts are so perfectly designed (very smart). Thank you for sharing your talents.
