Arrows & Apples Shawl. Sall Nooled & Õunad.




The Arrows & Apples Shawl was designed a year ago but never made it to my blog. At first I knitted the narrow shawl (on left) in cotton - linen blend yarn. I ran a MKAL in Estonian knitting forum. Since then I tweaked the pattern  a bit to make both ends match better. The Arrows & Apples shawl pattern is designed to be symmetrical, with apples in the centre of the shawl and arrows racing towards the apples from each side.

I let the design set before got back to it. I knitted up another version in fine Australian variegated yarn Empire 2ply by Morris & Sons, 100% Merino, 704 meters / 50 grams.

The original charts were made in Excel. The new version is made using StitchMastery. I still learn how to use the software. I enjoy the process. Now I'm able to add written instructions to my patterns and get professional looking charts. I'll update my older charts one day hopefully.

I started test knitting of A&A pattern in my Ravelry group. If you are interested, I still can squeeze some testers in.


 

 
Nooled & Õunad sallimuster valmis juba aasta tagasi, kui kudusin kitsama variandi, kasutades puuvillase-linasegust lõnga. Mustrit sai kootud Isetegija foorumi salakudumisel, mõned ehk veel mäletavad. Foorumi osalise kokku-kukkumise järgselt on teemast paljud postitused kadunud. Blogisse sall tol korral ei jõudnudki.
Lasin mustril puhata ja settida enne uuesti kudumist. Kohendasin skeeme nii, et salliotsad on veelgi sarnasemad. Uus variant sai kootud peenest Austraalia pitsilõngast. Endised Excelis tehtud skeemid on nüüd uuendatud, kasutades programmi StitchMastery. Õpin alles programmi võimalusi kasutama, naudin iga hetke. See programm kirjutab ise "regivärssi", mida paljud ameeriklased armastavad.
Muster on praegu testimisel, avaldamiseni läheb veel aega.

Väga kaunid sallid. Silm on Haapsalu sallidega niivõrd harjunud, et midagi natuke teistsugust on vahelduseks päris värskendav.
