Swedish Rosepath Sampler

Swedish Rosepath Sampler

Here are some pictures of my recent Swedish Rosepath sampler. It was the first time I used a threading sequence other than 1, 2, 3, 4 and it was fun to use a structure other than plain weave. I also had to learn tabby, which is a technique to keep weft in place when the same shaft is raised multiple times in a row.

Spring must be inspiring me because I am really into pink and green color combinations these days. You may recall that the tapestry and rug technique sampler I made last month was also pink and green.

The warp in this Rosepath sampler is 10/2 perle cotton from Lunatic Fringe. The weft has sections of 10/2 perle cotton, 3/2 perle cotton, Harrisville Shetland and Cascade 220 knitting yarn.

I ordered two colors of 10/2 wool to make a scarf in Rosepath. I really like how some sections of this will be great to use as borders and others are great as a full pattern.
