I have been working on the idea for wildlife designs for Ski sweaters for some time now. My inspiration for this particular series was the gorgeous change in foliage, harvest time, and “buck fever.” Yes, in Idaho, Camo gear is the fashion of choice this time of year, as everyone and his brother is hunting for that vension or elk back strap steak to put on the table.
So… with all this in mind, my first set in the series is my “White Tail Buck” combo to use on a sweater for your favorite hunter. Below is a peak at my digital finished sweater.
I am designing these sets to include charts for bottom borders, shoulders, and Intarsia chest scenes. The gauge is set up for sports weight yarn, but you could use them for fingering weight as well, the patterns would just be a bit smaller.. Of course all these charts can be used for other things, such as pillows, and socks.(especially the Squirrel border).
I have had a great time creating these, and hope you will enjoy them too.
The method combines Intarsia (in the round), and Fair Isle. I will include the how to’s and all special affects instructions in the patterns. The patterns will also include the basic structure of a Ski sweater and application variations.
I originally opted for selling these motifs on Etsy, but since then I have opted to share them with you at not cost. If you are interested, email me (see contact page).
