Fae Sweater Nouveau
Mushroom Cap Sleeved Sweater on the go.
Lice Pattern and Shetland Border Pattern in Fair Isle. Mushrooms from Bibliothèque DMC's 1905 Point de Croix Nouveaux Dessins, IIme Série worked in Kitchener Stitch. (This is the best way to deal with these Cross Stitch patterns which often have three colours in each row. The organic lines of Art Nouveau rarely hit the diagonals needed to provide a sturdy fair isle fabric.)
Collar? What think you? (I'm also thinking of Juliet style dropped puff sleeves)
