I'm late! I was away from home (at school) from 6 AM until 12 AM. Yup thats right. I had to chaperonne at a school dance in the evening so it was a long long day.
But this gave me a whole lot of time to think up a great theme for this Find.
an intricate multicoloured pattern knitted with Shetland wool into various garments, such as sweaters
It's a technique that is seen in beautiful sweaters and hats/gloves. It is sooooooooooooo stunning. When you are knitting in the round it is not much of a problem to make these kind of motifs (it involves quite some finger wrestling with different yars which is beyond my abilities) because it is seamless and the stitches are stacked above eachother.
With crochet you have a problem to make this technique work. Only single crochet is capable of creating a dense fabric, but when you are working in the round all the stitches shift each round. Luckily there are a few great designers who puzzled it all out and created beautiful patterns for crocheters to try Fair Isle!
Here are a few!
This would be a master test in crocheting Fair Isle!
Beautiful! Veritas, Equitas Fingerless Mittens
I have gotten quite some inspiration from this Find. I hope you enjoyed it my dear readers!
