With the spring coming fast this year.. even in Minnesota.. I was looking for a quick and easy project to knit: something fresh with light weighted yarn!
That’s when I found this lovely idea from Laylock.
I just thought it was perfect, as I already had the yarn, an unused frame lying around and nothing nice to store my earrings. I decided to use the same pattern for the swatch, but to add a piece of fabric in the back so it will be more visible in front of a white wall.
Here is the material I used:
- A black Ikea frame (11″ 3/4 x 15″ 3/4);
- A ball of sock weighted yarn;
- Size 4 circular needles;
- A piece of fabric a little bit larger than the frame itself.
From the finished swatch.. to the mounted fabric:
And finally the result!!…
.. which I am not really happy with actually.. I think the frame is too thin regarding its size.. and the black is just too depressing… Actually it feels to me like every combination I made here is wrong: from the frame to the fabric..
So I guess I learned my lesson today:
Recycling something you don’t like doesn’t always work.. 😐
