well begun but not half done


A third of the way through the Fox Paws pattern knitted wrap; while it still requires counting, the repeats become more comprehensible with repetition. Blocking will smooth out the texture a bit once the project is complete. The knitting itself is not that complicated, being mostly garter stitch. The complicated part is counting out all the repetitive increases and decreases, which is what makes the fascinatingly psychedelic topology. If you "unwound" it all, it is simple stripes in five colors, in a varying repeat...

  1. Stunning piece of knitting. I love the pattern. I am knitting a baby shawl and, though one colour, its all about the increases and decreases and yarn over. Still amazes me how intricate it can look doing that in a sequence of steps.
