Huvitav muster/A fun stitch pattern

Lõng on Cotton Gold (Alize), puuvilase ja akrüüli segu, 100 g/330 m. Ei ole nii jäik, nagu paljud puuvillased lõngad. Tahtsin midagi reljeefset, proovisin poolpatenti, polnud ilus. Proovisin ripsiga poolpatenti, aga kujutage ette, hakkas viltu kiskuma. Kusjuures mul on sellest lõngast labases parempidises koes ümmarguse passega topp, see ei kisu, kuigi labane kude on viltukiskumise esimene kandidaat. Lõpuks leidsin sellise mustri.
The yarn is Cotton Gold (Alize), cotton and acrylic blend, 100 g/330 m. It is not as stiff as many kinds of pure cotton. I wanted some textured pattern and tried half-brioche that did not look nice. I tried half-brioche with garter stitch but can you imagine that the fabric became biased. At the same time, I have a round yoke top in stockinette from this yarn and it is not biased, although stockinette is a primary candidate for biased fabric. Finally, I found this stich.
 
Kudumine võtab aega, aga tulemus meeldib mulle. On tekstuurne, samas ei ole vetruv nagu soonik. Peaks kindlasti proovima mohäärist ja villasest lõngast.
It is time consuming but I like the effect. It is textured yet it does not contract as ribbing does. I should definitely try it in mohair and wool.

Jätkub/Progressing

Praeguseks on juba mõlemad varrukad olemas. Huvitav, et "kananahk" on täitsa nähtav, kuigi lõngad on peenikesed.
I have already both sleeves completed. Interesting how double moss stitch has quite a good definition in thin yarn.

Uus algus/A new beginning

Vana tuttav mall, aga lõng on peenike mohäär + peenvillane. Muster on täitsa nähtav, kuigi võiks arvata, et peenike mohäär on pehme ja settõttu reljeefsed mustrid eriti ei paista.
An old familiar pattern but the yarn is different, thin mohair + laceweight wool. The stitch pattern has a nice definition, although one might think that thin mohair is too soft and due to that textured patterns are not visible.
Ülemisel pildil on proovilapid. Alumine on peaaegu mustast mohäärist, mida oli kodus võtta. Tahtsin vaadata, kas asi tötöab. Siis hankisin juba seda värvi lõnga, mida tellija soovis.
In the top pictures there are two swatches. The bottom swatch is from almost black mohair that I had at home. I wanted to see whether the pattern works. Then I bought mohair in the colour the customer wanted.
Siin pildil on seljatükk ja eistüki algus. Tegelikult on praeguseks juba rohkem kootud, varsti ühendan kaenla all. Sviiter läheb VARKKI poodi, vaatame, kuidas läheb.
Here you see the back piece and the beginning of the front piece. Actually, I have knitted more for now: I will join the back and the front quite soon. The sweater is supposed to be on sale at VARKKI store, we shall see how it turns out.

Rätik/The shawl

Nüüd on valmis. Kude on pärast leotamist ja pingutamist avanenud, muster paistab kenasti.
Now it is finished. The fabric has opened after soaking and blocking and the pattern is quite visible.
