Here’s another pattern from what I should have called the Disney vault—except, of course, it’s my vault. I had to redesign and test weave this one three times today which is typical for “picture” patterns, but I find it very boring. Rather than test my third idea without weaving it, I edited my photo. Ditto for the fourth.
Found this in the Disney archives (well, not actually Disney’s, just my own). Several years old, never posted.
This pattern is called “Chick (1)” because there’s another similar design in the offing. It may never see the light of day, but it exists.
Sample square shows Chick (1) with all optional stitches.
If you don’t look too closely, you won’t notice the aberration.
Judie Eatough won’t take credit for this pretty weaving draft, but she readied it for the pin loom and brought it to our attention. These are her comments: “Here is a pattern for the dogwood blossom that is a traditional Atwater-Bronson lace pattern. This one uses 3 thread warp floats. The photo is of the unwashed square done in acrylic yarn. The petals round some because the plain weave pushes into the lace areas. Use a yarn that gives you a firm plain weave square.”
One of my blog readers, Lee Ross, contacted me recently for some advice on designing a dog paw print pattern. I gave her a little advice and she sent me these wonderful results! With her permission, I share her design with you. “Molly’s Paw”—copyright Lee Ross.
Can you handle another yule tree? This design suggested itself while I was drawing up a totally different pattern. Read More →
