Argyle anyone?


Diva MaryBeth at The Stitchery is working on an argyle machine knit pattern these days - I mentionned using teeny ricrac for the "X" in the argyle pattern. Here's a test swatch of a deconstructed argyle pattern for a knit top I did a while back, just so you can have a visual of the technique.

I'd love to learn more about this particular argyle...is it felt with the rickrack overlay? from another Mary Beth

The lozenges of the argyle are made of stretch mesh and topstitched on to rayon jersey. This was a test swatch for a long sleeve pull over teeshirt. The argyle is placed on the upper chest from armhole to armhole.
