TAST Algerian Eye

This is my ‘doodle’ work and I used wool and the knitted floss, which looks great, but doesn’t show at it’s best here.
I worked on the floss in poor night light, so my stitches are not laid correctly. I guess I can’t watch TV, read a book and sew at the same time anymore.

I fancied doing some of the alphabet and like how it worked. If I used it I’d have to narrow the A to be the same size as the other letters. I could step the thinner leg or remove the half stitch at the top.

I like the flattened version of the Algerian Eye and used it in both of these patterns.

  1. They are beautifull, as always. The flowers are adorable. Did I miss something here? How do you do them?

  2. Nina, the flowers are just loosely wound bullions. I did not pull them up tightly. I used Edmar Beta thread; it’s silky but has no twist.
