Main Sample


Below I have shown my main sample in some more detail, explaining the technicalities of the piece and the different elements that make it up. This piece is entirely created from excess material, surplus yarns and deconstructed knits from second hand stores, therefore some information about the yarns and wools used is unknown. I have adapted to this by comparing the size of the yarn to the product it was made from or was before.

Grey/silver plyed – old scarf, medium thickness, about 3mm width, 11 WPI (Wraps Per Inch)

White thick yarn – from scarf made up of garter knit stitch, about 9mm width, 2WPI

Off white yarn – old hat from charity shop, 4mm width, 8WPI


*This measurements or not exact and have been conducted from home.

Close up of embroidery detail – threading beads and gems onto my needle and then back stitching through the crochet layers
Here you can see the centre of the crochet where I binding on and started the process. To add crochet and expand so that I created different curved edges and forms, I added yarn overs x1/x2 and then thread back into the main sample
The thick white crochet chain shown here is made up of a smaller knit – the knit resembled that of a merino or mohair knit that had been knitted using larger needles such as a 10mm or 12 mm size so that there were gaps in the product. The kit was deconstructed and made into a yarn I used for this crochet chain, from an old scarf found at a local charity shop.
