Rhythmical Lines - October 10 & 24
with Judie Hershey
Dates: Thursday, October 10 & 24
Skill Level: Advanced Beginner / Intermediate
Rhythmical Lines is an infinity scarf featuring a super simple slip-stitch pattern inspired by a Waclaw Szpakowski drawing.
Szpakowski was a polish architect and engineer known for his sketches esploring the dynamical possibilities of simple lines. Here the original white background is replaced with a variegated-multicolored one and this variation gives a completely different flavor to the piece.
The scarf is worked to the desired length and then grafted.
Broken lines are worked on a colorful background, forming a pattern that can be seen as an argile-type design or as a succession of concentric rectangles or - of course - as a series of rhythmical lines.
The contrasting lines are thinner than the background because they are worked in garter stitch, while the background is worked in stockinette.
Knitting this scarf is very easy and fun, and the result is stunning!
