This week, I got a jumper idea in my head, like an itch I had to scratch. I’m not sure if this is an original idea or if someone else has already done it, but I’m going with it.
I saw a tunisian crochet entrelac jumper on Instagram. The image stuck in my head and despite the fact that I couldn’t find it again for ages, I kept thinking about it. What I’m actually creating is nothing like it in terms of stitches and construction, but it was the idea of the spirals going round and round and widening as they go that grabbed me.
So this is what I have so far.
After a couple of false starts I have these slanted, spiralling fptr (or fpdc in US terms) marking out these widening stripes. I’m imagining keeping it going right through the body of the jumper, not sure what will happen to the arms. At some point it won’t be widening any more, so the spirals will just keep going at the same width around the body. But who knows how it will really end up. Depends where my mind takes it! It’s fun to experiment 🙂 I’m wondering if the slant of the fptrs is enough … maybe I should do fpdtrs and from one stitch further on… hmmm…
The yarn I’m using is Deramores Studio DK in Topaz.
