I haven’t been Working Without Patterns lately, I’ve been following a pattern called Flangifruity! (Oh wait, that’s what I keep calling it by accident.) I mean Frangiflutti! By Edith Filzhof.
You can find this awesome pattern for free on Ravelry here. Mine’s not finished yet, and not exactly right, as I had to modify it for bigger needles and yarn. I modified this pattern to fit Caron Simply Soft (color- Victorian Rose) and size 7 needles (photo shows it not yet finished, I realized I needed more increases on part 3 after that point to make the long point at the end longer).
Here is what I did: Part 1 was 4 row repeats for rib instead of 6, increase 1 every 6 rows. Part 2 was the same as the pattern stated. Part 3 was increase 2 stitches at the long end every row instead of increasing 1, and BO 3 stitches to make the corners every 4 rows on the decreasing edge (to match the ribbing). My long pointy end is coming out a little bunchy, so doing the increases of 2 should probably done a little more loosely. I think I will be able to fix this with blocking, and will add a finished photo once it’s dry.
I found Part 2 a little confusing, (as you can tell where mine has a bump on the right side above the purple marker, that bump shouldn’t be there…I ripped back when I realized I had read the pattern wrong, but it looks like I should have ripped a little further!) It is easy though if you look at the photo for Part 2, decreases always on one side, increases on the other side. (This is where the 2 different color markers were used to remind me.)
Finished Frangiflutti. I had to lay it flat during blocking so the water didn’t stretch out the end shown on the bottom of the photo, losing the ribs.
Other things I’ve been working on: Weaving! I have updated a weaving post that I had done awhile back with much new information and photos. See it here: https://ilovesocks.wordpress.com/2012/07/05/working-without-patterns-weaving-skirt-and-scarves/
