Hi everyone! As promised: the digital version of the pattern is made. It’s in the menu with my knotting patterns, together with a description which I already did for a big part in my previous blogs. Or click here to go to the pattern rigth away. The video’s are in progress being edited by the creative persons here in my home 🙂 Of course they had to have a nice tune, some pictures, the sound has to be excellent. All kinds of stuff I hardly have knowledge about how to do that the right way (okay, maybe a little), but I have my helpers hereRead More →

The lower border Almost finished! I want to share some last things with you. You can see in this picture that I ended at a certain length.  I had enough yarn left to continue for a couple of rows, but I thought it as ok actually. The bag had a nice depth for what I want to use it for, so time to end it. To get a straight lower border, you must first get all knots in a straight line.  With the colored block this is done by knotting half blocks. At the yellow parts you can see I did a row of 4Read More →

Oh dear…. Well, not really 🙂 . I ran into a ‘problem’, like I already mentioned in a previous post. As you can see in the picture here, I used a lot more of the purple yarns than I used for the other colors. At this point I had approximately 50 cm (20 inch) left of the purple threads, and about 70 cm (28 inch) of the other colors. Well, this is not exactly my very first design, so I could have foreseen this. I know that making a knot uses more length of your thread, than when you make a knot around this threadRead More →

And now closing the circle! When you have knotted quite some part of the motifs next to eachother, you can go closing the circle, so you will get a, closed on the edges, whole. And this is really super simple! To close the circle, you take the left and the right side of your work and bring them together. Make a knot in the upper border threads, so you will get these two sides as closely together as possible. In the first rows the work has a tendency to move apart from eachother,  so it is necessary to really pull the first knots tight. NextRead More →

The design: a short review As you can read and see in my previous blogs, I made a design for a knotted bag. And now the sequel: the actual knotting of it! The ones that follow my facebook page already saw a preview in a vlog of the start, and how to knot the threads around the upper border threads. If you don’t follow my facebook page yet, you can see a direct link to my page in the menu! I can tell you secretly that I am a lot further already, and it turns out so nice!!!  A special twist on the design happened,Read More →
