From an enchanted coast in Denmark, you might by chance see a lovely lady strolling the rocky Baltic Sea edge in a Solstice Lanterns Tam. This is an outstanding knit of the design, as I am so very fond of the natural colorway of Hiyastricklust’s tam. Hers is a great example of how the kaleidoscopic affect of the motifs alone are interesting enough, without making the lantern “lights” a focal point. It is a “lights out” version.
Oh and is that really a thatched roof I see in the countryside there? Utterly charmed lives some knitters have ~~ thank you Hiyastricklust, for your lovely artful knitting !
Beautiful job! Looks so nice and warm for a cold day by the seaside.
Doesn’t it! Makes me want to drive out to the coast in *my* tam. xx
Beautiful! Great photos as well. I love the little swirls around the dividers between each repeat…nice touch!
Virginia, like you, I love her decrease. I am not sure (not that expert on centered raised decreases) but I think that might be a different method . I’ll hope that Petra answers our question. 🙂
😍 My wonderful SIL…… She did a stellar example of your beautiful design Jen, but I guess, she just did another / any kind of decrease. Maybe happened by accident, but with an interesting effect.
Strolling by the seaside! Put that right now on my to do list!
Petra, there she is, your SIL!!! I have actually done the same decrease once but now as I don’t have all those FO’s around the house in a big chest, I have to just try to remember. I think it was in an Alice Starmore Fair Isle book I learned.
Anyway , yes, I think its time you go strolling along the Baltic Sea’s edge too. 🙂 xx
Wonderful photos, showing the gorgeous tam and lovely scenery.
Wen, she did a fantastic job for certain. I especially noticed the thatched roof, a real live fairy tale scene!
Just gorgeous. Really lovely and how beautifully photographed.
You have developed such a lovely community of International knitters Jen.
I’m saving the one from Australia for the summer/winter solstice. 🙂 xx!
Lol. They are so lovely!!!
Stunning design. Adore it..
Thank you! xx : )
