One can’t really talk about crochet designer Laurinda Reddig without mentioning her Reversible Rowan Tree Vest, created in memory of her daughter, Rowan. This gorgeous and amazing vest won Grand Prize in the 2012 CGOA Design Competition. It is truly a work of art. You can read more about Laurinda’s story of making the Reversible Rowan Tree Vest on her blog. In the 2011 CGOA Design Competition, her afghan, The Marvelous Mystery Machine, won the People’s Choice Award. Laurinda has self-published a book, Rowan’s Learn to Crochet Sampler Afghan. Her designs have also been published in magazines.
This is Laurinda’s Reversible Rowan Tree Vest. Both sides are equally gorgeous. One side has swarovski crystal flowers and the other has red beads for berries.
The first pattern Laurinda has published using her reversible intarsia technique is her “I Love Baby” Reversible Intarsia Blanket (and washcloth), available on Ravelry.
