… OrganiX : organic knitting (2) …

Some variations on a theme: the ‘eye’

OrganiX T

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 form with every round.

It is worked with 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.

The OrganiX cowl comes in 2 versions: a short version 56cm (22”) (orange cowl pictured) and a long version 112cm (44”) (red cowl pictured) with an average width of 25cm (10”)

And again … The OrganiX scarf is worked sideways, with 2 color ridges and features …. an ‘eye’-catching motif. It’s also reversible.

All of these designs work very well with a multicolored or semi-solid colored yarn combined with a solid color.

All techniques (short rows, I-cord cast-on, …) used are explained in full detail in the patterns.
