Cube Stitch Net Shawl


I had been saving some variegated yarn I really liked. I decided to use it and make a shawl with one of my favorite stitches - the Cube Stitch. This shawl was made using several rows of the Icicle Increase Stitch, multiple rows of the Cube Decorative Stitch, and the Increase Rigging Edge with Fringe.

Here is the shawl laid out flat. The cube stitch creates several optical illusions, cubes and circles to name a couple. 




Here is the front of the shawl.





Here is the back of the shawl.

Fireworks (small)


This is one of the doilies my grandmother Esther Peterson Bott Freeman designed. She made it using two colors. This is what it looked like without the color. I think I like it better with the color on the outer rows of the doily.

Chariot Wheel


When I first made this doily I was trying to make another one. I made a mistake, and rather than cut off the many rows I had completed, I changed the edge to one that would work with the number of stitches I had.

Harvest


I wanted to see what it a doily would look like if I changed the center and edge of Pineapple.

Poise (small)


This is another doily made by my grandmother Esther Peterson Bott. I wanted to see what it looked like without the outer portion in colored thread.

Tranquility


This doily had the center, stitches, and edge chosen by one of my daughters. She knew how to net, but I chose to make it for her.
