Wildflowers and Lace is a collection of the lace scarves and shawls designed by Anne Corcoran of Queen Anne's Lace Knitting. Each post is a discussion of the challenges of interpreting an aspect of our real world into the surreal world of hand knitted lace. Please join in the discussion.
Here is another pretty knitting stitch with a lovely poetic name - Syncopated Brioche. Remember the song Syncopated Rhythm, well here it is in yarn.
This stitch has a lot of texture and movement. Here are my photo takes on Syncopated Brioche. The picture above is from the Barbara Walkersite.
Cherry in Spring
Blossoms and leaves give a lot of texture and movement to trees. Adding a second colour to this brioche stitch or adding beads would give it a floral "feel." Here is another in blue.
Scilla in Spring
I love blue and green together and the texture here is very inviting. Again adding beads to the Brioche Stitch would really enhance this texture.
I am working on some lace scarves base on the seasons. This picture of Scilla is my inspiration for one of my two Spring ideas - Showers and Flowers. I have almost finished Showers and thanks to doing some test knitting for Vogue designer Lynette Meek, I will finish my scarf with a "mock crochet" stitch.
