playing with patchwork








Working with knitted patches, making patchwork cowls with leather thonging and deer antler tips and big buttons.

I made the knitted patchwork throw shown top in neutral shades back in 2012 and have been using up scraps of wool and sewing them together ever since. Knitting little squares and rectangles and at some point in the future sewing them together is very relaxing, slow - knitted patchwork is a wonderful long-term project.

I'm heading into 'ornate patchwork' territory using bigger stitches, sashiko techniques and feeling more adventurous with texture and colour.
