01 May Name This Design…
Update ~ May 11, 2017
I am super pleased to announce that this design now has a name! All the names submitted were wonderful so choosing just one was difficult. And now..without further ado…(drum roll)…
Meet “Refined Arches Tabard” ~ named by Magda.
This name really spoke to me for a couple of reasons – first is that the lace patterns (inspired by the architecture of an older building) really do look like arches, and second is that Arches National Park in Utah is one of my favorite places to visit. Thank you to Magda for her insight and wonderful name submission.
And thank you to everyone who participated in this little contest and fun adventure! Look for the final pattern to be released in a couple of weeks.

So I have this lovely, simple topper design…that has been waiting for a name. Can you help me Name This Design?
The design features two complimentary lace stitch patterns, the body knit in the round to the underarms then split to finish the yoke, no shaping – it’s all done with blocking, and the length is intended to fall just above the hips. Unfortunately, sadly the yarn I used for the pictured topper has been discontinued (Frog Tree Alpaca Sport Melange), so I will most likely work up a new sample in a yarn currently available. It will still be a light-weight alpaca though since it suits this little design perfectly.
To help find the perfect name for this topper I am asking for your help…..and running a little contest. Just comment on this post to participate. You must include the name you are proposing, why you think the name is the one I should choose, your name and a valid contact email. You may suggest more than one name however each suggestion must be a separate comment.
Participation will end on May 10th at 9 pm MST, and on May 11th I will announce which proposed name I’ve chosen. This will not be a random drawing. I will be choosing a submitted name that speaks to me and that I feel fits the design best. The person submitting the winning name will receive a copy of the final, published pattern, and a surprise gift.
Here are a couple pictures of this lovely little topper –
I am excited and looking forward to learning the names you come up with!
