Islamic pattern from Rutt Islamic pattern from Rutt
Finally finished, July 08! Very slow colourwork project, from a pattern in Rutt's history of hand knitting, graphed by someone on HistoricKnit yahoogroup. Shown here while blocking, w/ 20p piece for scale. It's going to be a very small, delicate pouch for moi. It qualifies as 3Rs because all the yarn is from stash, and the white is a remaindered cone of mixed wool fibre. The pink is a handspun gift. The maroon is a single ply of a 2-ply that I 'unspun' to try it as a knitting yarn. Getting consistent tension w/ colourwork remains my main problem! that, and following a detailed pattern.

Yourt Islamic pattern is so beautiful!

your tension with the double colors looks perfect.. and the pattern is stunning... what a wonderful job.... if all my knittings tension were as perfect as this I wouldn't shy away from intarisa and fair isle knitting!

I'm so sorry to be commenting on this old, old entry. But! Do you know what the script at the bottom says? Is it actually in Arabic or is it just faux script?

It's very lovely, no matter the answer!
