First Swatch of Star Stitch + Love Knot Pattern

May 2014 while I was preparing materials to teach an in depth class on each stitch at the CGOA national conference.

 

I tried a range of different tall and short stitch combinations to create symmetrical transitions between the fancy Victorian star stitches and love knots.

 

I like the surface texture of the stitches in the white yarn, but for some reason the love knots look irregular. I think the yarn doesn't have enough bounce for them.

 

I really like the look of the pink swatch, a sport weight single ply merino wool yarn.
