It was a quiet Sunday afternoon at home after a late and silly night. While my lover napped I, having a little more energy than he, decided to take advantage of the peace by practicing my knitting technique. I got out my old stitch dictionary and cast-on to learn two colour Jacquard.
HOLY MOLY!! Who knew it could be this easy? This is honestly one of the simplest things I have ever done. Look at how amazing and complicated it appears. Just look at it!!
The bottom inch is Bicolour Half Linen Stitch and the top half is Bicolour Brick.
Now, how to incorporate such magic into my actual knitting?
|All these effects are achieved by knitting with a single colour in a row|
using various combos of knits, purls and slipped stitches.
|I picked up this 1978 French publication at a second hand shop for 50 cents. |
What a find.
