Kõik teavad, et puhas peenike linane lõng armastab parem- ja pahempidist, ripsi, auke, lehe- ja rombimustreid jms. Aga mitte soonikut, s.o. mitte midagi reljeefset. Nagu arvata võib, hakkasin siiski eksperimenteerima ja proovisin poolpatenti.
Everyone knows that thin pure linen loves stockinette and reversed stockinette, garter stitch, eyelets, leaf and diamond patterns etc. But not ribbing, that is, nothing textured. As you can guess, I nevertheless started experimenting with half-patent stitch.
Not exactly pretty. But look now at this swatch that is washed. A different story altogether.
I did not block the swatch, just put it to dry. The fabric is not textured but is quite acceptable. I have to think whether I continue in this pattern or do something else.
