Knit Fish pattern, in ‘7 yarns’ or ‘3+1+3’ technique

Another piece of trying techniques.

IMG_9374

Based on 3 yarn technique:
knit row 1 with A
attach & purl row 2 with B (leave A where it is)
attach and knit row 3 with C (leave B where it is)
row 4 – p with A (leave C where it is)
row 5 -k B
6 – p C.

So that is the basic technique I used, but more involved:
7 yarns,
knit 3 as above, use 1 yarn for fish, use the other 3 for other side.
Then, change fish color when inspired but keep 3 yarns on each side of the fish.

Knitting is actually easier than reading it. Anyway – it was much fun and if I have time I hope to do 6 more pieces (not fish…) to go with a piece I wrote about reincarnation.

Pink Lily Shawl

Water Lilies are very big with me. I have so many photos of them just waiting to be knit. This is an experiment in making a simple lily – only 2 colors, and at the same time experimenting with shawl shapes (looking for a shape I really like, that permits picture knitting on it).

Knitted sideways in st.st with small short rows at the bottom hem, and one big short row section across the whole thing in the back (as an upside down V. Starting with very short rows, inc. all the way to the top then dec back again.)
