Fair Isle and C2C Triangles

I still dream of making some beautiful Fair Isle but I haven't yet found a pattern that I trust myself to complete. Instead I've recently scratched the itch for the time being by copying patterns from sections of a shop bought cardigan.

 

The little bag that I've made isn't perfect and I'll have to find out how to avoid creating holes when finishing one section and starting another. There's always something new to learn but one way around it that I've since discovered is to knit with one plain yarn and one self changing coloured yarn, hey why didn't I think of that? That method would also get rid of all the ends too.


I've also been trying out something new, C2C. I chose Tatsiana Kupryianchyk's triangles from the C2C Pastel Triangles Pillow pattern. I absolutely love the squishy texture of this little blanket and thoroughly enjoyed making the triangles so I'll definitely try C2C again.


Both of these projects were made with Stylecraft Special double knitting yarn in the following colours - clematis, wisteria, violet, magenta, plum, candyfloss, fondant and raspberry. I've pretty much used up all the leftover recycled yarn from an old blanket so now I can chose some new yarn to work with :-)

  1. Just looking at all the beautifully colored blankets, etc. on your blog brightens my day, honestly! You do such gorgeous stitching and I love your color combos. By the way, your Fair Isle bag is beautiful and the patterns you used remind me of the similar bag I knitted for my iPad.
