speldenkussen




Not knowing what to do with all the 10 meter yarns that come from the dyeing experiments I decided to make a speldenkussentje. It is inspired on a pincushion that was made by my aunt Nel, who is into quilting. I tried to use her construction to make a knitted version. Both sides of the speldenkussen are knitted with different types of yarn. They show how the same dyelot does different things with different yarn. The speldenkussen was made by knitting 2 circles. Stitching them together. With a contrasting color I formed the pincushion into its shape.

I love your pincushion design. I stitched something similar using woolfelt and I love to use it. Would you consider selling the pattern for this design as I would love to knit one.
