(Or Stuff I forgot I Charted)

Another Efeu

This is a group containing one oval and two round doilies, plus an adaptation I never got around to except in Photoshop:

Original Oval Doily

Original Small Doily

Large Doily = Oval Without Extensions

Oval As Tunic

Above Photoshop edit shows oval doily with center 4 leaves omitted and extensions worked on all four sides, then folded.

The test knitter’s photo shows surprising detail that isn’t visible in the original. For purchase info Click Here

Will also see if there is a clear way to make into a triangular shawl, as with Viktoria-Aster:

The above pattern from 1938 could be said to be a “study” for more elaborate designs to come. It will be half price today (12/31/18) only. For more details Click Here.

Below are 2 pics of an adaptation made from the pattern featured in the original post. The adaptation will be for sale in early January because I need better photos, and would also like to try it in a different yarn, like mohair. Worsted weight cotton and Size 8 needles were used. If interested in this adaptation leave a comment below.

Meanwhile thought I’d add some eye candy knitted by Dawn Hamilton. She knitted the Blattgrund pattern from the Erikas Handarbeiten 80.

The variegation in the yarn she turned out to be a lovely complement to the leaf motif.

Happy Knitting!

Hi All,

Hoping everyone gets nice gifts of yarn/thread! ;-)

Meanwhile, will see if I can finish a triangular version of Strahlenkelchblume (best translation of the name I can find is “Gleaming Calyx” but am not sure).

Below is an example photo of what inspires the attempt.

After recharting White Wisteria, was “talked into” recharting Goldregen, by a person who had the original charts but was somewhat put off by the German instruction text. That is, after the initial rounds, the instructions involve working the entire chart line or most of it, and then repeating only certain sections, some of which were not consecutive. In the rechart, the going back and forth has been mostly eliminated to the extent that the only going back and forth is when long stitch groups are repeated consecutively.

The above pattern is simpler than Niebling’s circular Goldregen (which name he also used for a rectangular design). However, this variation perhaps has more possibilities for easy adaptations, as can be seen below with the results of my playing around in Photoshop:


Mohair yarn with Size 6 to 8 needles would perhaps make a nice small shawl… the Round Number at which to stop will be provided in an update to this post.


A doily beret comes to mind with the above motif, extending the leaves onto the brim might be interesting, say for a slouchy beret…


Finally, the above would look nice as either a window or wall hanging…

Happy Holidays To All!

Niebling used the name “Narzisse” at least three times: in 1937, 1948, and this one in1960 — by far the prettiest! Also, if anyone had asked me if Niebling ever used the left twist stitch, I would have sworn up and down that he didn’t, even though I haven’t recharted all of them! ;-) And now I’m wondering what other Niebling patterns contain left twists — actually, I have one in mind, but more about that later. In any case, would love to hear from anyone who knows of any…

Initially this pattern was to be republished as a reconstruction by Franciska Ruessink, but after finishing her chart she found an original and sent it to me because she was somewhat unhappy with the differences between her reconstruction and the original instructions. Below is Franciska’s reconstruction.


The differences between the above photos are virtually invisible, except for Franciska’s superior blocking… However, there are significant differences between the original chart and Franciska’s… which is actually a tribute to Franciska’s skill in her reconstruction, as well as in blocking the cloth…

Finally, below are photos with watermark filters applied showing only the first ring of flowers (to Round 141), and the center before the first flowers (to Round 99). As for the borders of either smaller version, am not sure what could be done.

narzisse-original-photo-first-flower-ring-watermarkTo Round 141, possibly with some small changes.

narzisse-original-photo-center-watermarkTo Round 99 – Might be nice baby blanket or doily beret.

Hope to have at least one more pattern available for the holidays – Happy Knitting!
