Here is the swatch for the Traveling Leaf pattern from my last post. Do you recognize it? It looks somewhat different than the book version, I think because the needles are smaller in relation to the yarn gauge. Still pretty...but I'm not going to use it for this project.
Ecco, "Traveling Leaf"; lo conosci? E diverso che il foto nel libro, ma ancora bello. (Come si dice "swatch" in Italiano?) Ma non lo usaro` per questo progetto. I love this stitch pattern! Love it. Although I didn't love the asymmetry of the central double decreases, and started experimenting midway; I think the decrease direction either needs to be alternated, or changed to a vertical double decrease, where the center stitch is on top. I'm not going to use it for this project, but I already have other plans for another sweater using it, along with the perfect name: "Sorelle," the Italian word for "sisters," since the pattern stitch is "Four Sisters."
Amo questo disegno! Ma non amo la mancanza della simmetria nelle diminuzione; io faro` un po` diverso. Usaro` questo per un' altro progetto; chiamaro` "Sorelle," perche il disegno e chiamato "le quattro sorelle." Perfetto, non e' vero?
As for the Fan Shell pattern, I decided it had a little too much openwork for my purposes. Here is the stitch pattern I chose; next time, the swatch and perhaps, a little progress!
Ho deciso che "Fan Shell"...non so, come si dice "openwork" in Italiano. Ecco, il disegno ho scelto; la prossima volta, magari un po` di progresso!
