I created this motif for a pattern booklet of spirals that I am working on. It contains a brief introduction to freeform and a chance to try out a variation of one of the most popular freeform motifs (spiral). The finished piece measures 4”X2.75" and could potentially be used as anything from a project embellishment to component of a larger freeform project such as a tote bag, pillow, or jacket.
For this listing I am offering something special - both the pattern and the piece itself. Having the piece in front of you while working allows you to see all the tiny details. Its a great opportunity for someone just learning. Since I cannot offer a digital download and a physical object in the same listing I will do this - I will send a full-color printed copy of the pattern with the item and email a pdf copy of it to the email address on the paypal account used for payment within 2 (usually 1) business day. This will let you get a head start before the piece and printed pattern arrive.
To replicate the piece you will need the following fingering weight yarn available at www.knitpicks.com:
Palette – Tea Rose Palette – Victorian Palette – Hollyberry
This particular pattern can be worked exactly as-is with worsted weight yarn but the finished product will, obviously, be a bit larger.
Size D Aluminum crochet hook Small yarn needle Scissors Handheld garment steamer (optional)
This pattern uses a great deal of basic stitches (sc, hdc, dc, etc.). The puff stitch and the picot are the only ones I would call intermediate although the actual construction itself might be a little challenging for beginners. I do also use a magic circle but a circle of 5 ch would suffice.
The pattern is 6 pages long and contains 10 full-color photos. It is a digital pdf file. No physical item will be sent. You will be able to download the pattern as soon as your payment clears.
