Some variations on a theme: the ‘eye’
The OrganiX T is a tunic with an ‘eye’-cathing hidden pocket. It features a boatneck or an attached cowl. It is worked from the top with 2 color ridges (the second color gives extra depth to the ridges). Shortrows are used for the ridged pocket eye-motif.
This garment is worked seamlessly from the top-down using the contiguous sleeve method developed by Susie Myers (SusieM on Ravelry). This method is really nice and easy to work. It looks like a set-in sleeve, but is completely seamless. It’s such a pleasure to watch the sleeves and body take shape with every round.
I used a larger needlesize than recommended to obtain a stretchy garment and a comfortable fit .
Instructions for both boatneck-T or attached cowl.
OrganiX cowl or scarf
The OrganiX cowl is worked in the round with 2 color ridges and features the same but different ‘eye’-catching motif. The second color gives extra depth to the ridges and makes it reversible.
And again … The OrganiX scarf sideways, with 2 color ridges and features …. an ‘eye’-catching motif. It’s also reversible.
An idea that never seems to leave me. See here and here. Don’t know how I should call those: ‘eye’, or ‘leave’ or ‘almond’, ‘amande’. They look so organic.
The following pics are things I made several years back: eyes and circles
and more colorful ‘eyes’
To be continued … for sure
Fleur with silk lace yarn (tussah retordé). I just nearly finished an experiment with the fleur cardigan pattern. Making the Large size with lace weight to obtain a very airy knit.
It’s not so very easy to work, started in March and I continue ‘petit à petit’ to see the result
Finished sewing the flowers in. I’m wondering how this will turn out once blocked and if I can find the right buttons. I don’t know if I can wear this, but it sure makes pretty pictures.
