ReXtangle

Rextangle #7_1

I know it’s summer, and what am I doing knitting a scarf?  It all began by knitting a swatch in order to explore the relationship between unexpected color combinations.  As the swatch grew longer, so did my interest.  What would happen if I varied the size of the rectangle?

What started out as a swatch turned into something worth exploring.  An interesting sequence of color combinations emerged, accentuating the texture of a slip stitch pattern.

Without hesitation, I began seaming the two swatches together.  By seaming the two together, I was able to explore the various color combinations side by side.  To achieve the maximum interaction between rectangles, it’s imperative to line up the slip stitch rows when seaming.   I decided to leave an opening.

I attached two Dorset buttons as closures.

I enjoy the process of pushing the world of fiber to its limits with the use of knitting needles and various methods of experimentation. Along the way, the lens of my camera captures what I see.
