Architecture in Crochet Project – Exeter Cathedral #2:
The Exeter Cathedral window is one of many windows in this wonderful example of Gothic Architecture. These pictures show the boarder I have done around the stained glass, stone tracery window where I will begin to layer crochet stone tracery in a similar design as this incredible window. I will try to keep it somewhat minimal so that I may be able to pattern this type of design down the road should I decide to go this direction. I will see where this adventure takes me before I decide.
In the second picture I show the window upside down which has inspired me to add more windows from this wonderful Gothic Cathedral and perhaps design a shawl with several of my favourite window designs. The last picture shows the beginning of my layering of the stone tracery around the window. I have used two colours to give both depth, texture and shading to the design. Shown better when seen in person.
The yarns used so far are from Sweet Georgia Yarns at http://www.sweetgeorgiayarns.com and Malabrigo Rios http://www.malabrigoyarn.com These will be two of the prominent yarns used in this design. I have been collecting various stone colours from both of these companies who make the most wonderful merino wool yarns.
