i finally tried my hand at the solomon stitch.  it turned out ok.  i used a ribbon style yarn, & the draw string is just a black chain.  i only have my web cam, so hard to get pics of this, but here is a pic of it on my cardboard display lady, Lydia, curtesy of someone's camera phone.



here's a close-up showing the stitch & the yarn:


i also crocheted the headband on her.  it is white acrylic with a flower made from the same ribbon yarn as the capelet.  the necklace was crocheted with bamboo thread & has large, flat shell beads worked into it.

hope you like it. Smiley wish i had better pics of it.

at first sight I was thinking there was some papercrafting involved Cheesy
wrong Cheesy
I love the thinness of the capalet, it looks so elegant!

thanks!  hehe, the paper is just my model Wink

i was really plsed with it over all, especially when the young lady who bought it tried it on.  it looked wonderful on her.  i had made it a month of so ago, but didn't have a way to display it very well.   last week i made lydia & it sold. Cheesy  i knew ppl just needed to see it.  after it sold, ppl kept coming by & asking if someone had already bought it.  i guess that means i need to make more. Grin

i wish the knots were neater.  i poured over several tutorials & just couldn't get it to come out better.  i'm going to try it in reg yarn next time & see if that helps.  i would love some tips if anyone has any idea at how to neaten up my solomon's stitch.

It looks great in ribbon!  Great idea!  That's such a pretty stitch, but I haven't tried it yet because it looks hard.  Yours looks wonderful

it took a little work trying to sort it out, but it wasn't difficult.  though as i said i used quite a few online tuts & would like to get my knots a bit neater.  i had wanted to try it for a couple of years before i did.  this has been the year i have finally starting learning some new stitches.

the capelet is so pretty! It looks like it would be beautiful over a white tank top or shirt or even black. Something to accept an outfit for sure. I also really like the necklace though I do not think I would personally wear them together. for me there is such a thing as too much crochet. lol
I also like your cardboard model. What a clever way to display things! did you make her yourself?

thanks Smiley  i wore a white tank with it when i took the first pics of it, with me modeling.  but i won't show those because i had to use my webcam & being very chesty by nature, i look even more-so in the pics because of the way i had to hold the cam, lol. Lips sealed  plus, it was made for someone smaller than me.

yeah, the necklace was just up there for display.  i didn't have anything better than would fit over the display's big nose & hair flip Roll Eyes  they don't really go together, lol.  just two pieces i wanted ppl to see, & the necklace had a clasp.  the necklace was actually much longer & i had to pull it back on the display so you could see it for the capelet.  but i agree about watching how much crochet you wear at one time. funnily enough, the capelet & necklace both sold to a couple of young ladies shopping together. Smiley

yes, i did make the display myself.  here is a post about her & the other displays i made: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=317620.0.  nothing fancy by any means, but effective!
