Jodi modeled her show-and-tell item of an intricate, lacy sleeveless top/vest. She is working through the book Custom Crocheted Sweaters: Make Garments that Really Fit by Dora Ohrenstein and this is the second garment that she's created, we can't wait to see the others!
last tapestry class. She crocheted in the back-loop only, creating ridges that added interesting texture to the item.
Theresa showed off her tapestry skills with a small purse in beige/orange
Jodi also finished her pencil holder in blue and white. (And it even matches her sweater, did she do that on purpose?)
Julie took the headbands made in our last Tunisian class and joined them together into a purse with a ruffled top. The pattern was in the book, One Skein Crochet. The book contains 4-5 Tunisian crochet patterns. Interestingly, the purse also worked pretty well as a hat!
Maxine showed some star motifs that she made for the “Knit Café” at the castle event at the American Swedish Institute at the end of July. The stars are a the primary motif from the Pleiades Shawl pattern, found in the magazine Interweave Crochet Accessories 2012. The shawl pattern uses sock-weight yarn (and many more motifs!) but Maxine made these stars using Plymouth Encore, a
worsted weight yarn.
