PATTERN DETAILS

Before I came back to knitting again I did algorithmic art for many years. In my art I especially love floating shapes and when I came back to knitting I wanted to add this to the knitted piece . I love to make my own designs and I love coloring my work via short rows which is the perfect means to achieve these floating shapes. This kind of knitting builds one shape upon the other and it is very satisfying to experience the progress by adding another shape. Actually...it is addictive. You knit and you cannot wait what it will look like when you have added just one more shape... Apart from that you learn a lot and you may feel inspired to apply the technique which is called Swing Knitting in your own projects. There are also workshops to learn the technique, but this pattern is for all who want to knit such a piece without going through the workshops. There a 40 Pages with detailed description and a photo after each and every step. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knit and purl, German short rows, which is the quickest way to turn after a short row. There are videos on YouTube demonstrating this easy technique GAUGE 10 cm are about 20 stitches. But the gauge is not essential! The rectangles can be easily adapted in size later. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Two rectangles of about 50 x 80 centimeters PREFERRED BRAND/YARN Any sock yarn, I used Rowan Fine Tweed COLORWAY your taste

I have always loved to knit and crochet but only after I had gone into algorithmic art my eyes opened to the possibility of adding something... well... let's say unusual to my knitting. So I let nature, art and imagination inspire me to create something different every time. I also feel the need to try something which is new to myself every time. This keeps me in learning mode, my favorite state.
