i hope the photos make this easier to follow.
step one: extrude strands of the desired thickness in your chosen colour and cut lengths of about 2.5 cm with a craft knife or a tissue blade.
step 2: take one of the cut lengths and push the ends together to form a loop. repeat.
group the loops together as shown.
step 3: take a length of extruded clay and lay it across the group of loops as shown.
step 4: using the back of the blade deeply indent the clay making sure the indents are aligned with the centre of the loop.
step 5: i flatten the tails of the loops with a cocktail stick. this ensures each line of loops will lie reasonably flat. if you are making long lines you will need to do
this bit at a time. be carfull you dont mark the 'stitches' with your fingers/nails as you roll the cocktail stick.
repeat steps 1 to 5
step 6: place one line of stitches overlapping the flattened tails of the loops.
you can use this effect on its own or experiment with knitted cables, plaits etc.
if you have any questions or anything seems unclear please dont hesitate to ask me. for some reason the photos have come out smaller on this site than others
there is a larger version of this on my deviant art site ( http://originalbunny.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d36x1wf
) or email/pm and i'l send you a larger version
love2knit heart brooch (wip)
knitted cuff bracelet
more an experimental piece than anything else. im not entirely happy with it. i wanted give the cuff a curved shape but it was hard to achieve without squashing and distorting the 'stitches'
im think next time it would be easier to create an armature and layer the stitching as i go rather than create a sheet to cover the armature with. i think this would reduce the distortion.
i kept the colour a light cream both the keep the emphasis on the texture of the bangle and to mimic the colour of undyed wool.
