This last month as I began working on my Wildlife series I found myself back in the mood to paint some more yarn pictures. The White Tail Buck motif spurred me on, so here is #2 in the series- I just couldn’t put it aside. I’m on a roll!!!
I realize that the digital renditions are not the real thing, but it does give one the luxury of seeing what the finished work will look like – almost. It also gives me an opportunity to judge the balance, and color combinations; besides, never in a life time could I knit up all my ideas, I would have to live to be 200 plus.
All the charts in this pattern are detailed. They include many variations and applications for you to consider, along with instructions for the special stitches I use in the finishing details.
The charts can be applied to the front of a sweater (Eagle motif options), incorporated into an afghans design (sportweight) and adapted to needlepoint project. This particular pattern is charted for 8 stitches and 11 rows using a #1 (2.5) needle, knitting with fingering yarn, but I always include the charts for sportweight yarns as well. All of the patterns are set up for knitting, thus the grids are composed of rectangles, not squares. There is also a cameo grid applied to each version, which is one of the many options available.
The main pattern is set up for a 14 x 14 and 16 x 16 inch pillow tops, however, I always knit the whole pillow, (see my Tropicana Rose design in the pattern gallery)- I love using texture stitches on the back.
Bottom line for me is the artistic creation. It’s been great fun, and very rewarding.
Pictured below are version I and II
It will be on the shelf soon. I hope you like it!
