Mackintosh Rose

I love Art Nouveau. One of my favorite artits of this period is Charles Rennie Mackintosh. Whenever I look at his designs I feel the urge to create something myself. When I saw this chair inspiration hit.


This combined with his trademark - the stylized rose - will become my Mackintosh Rose Cardi.


To give you a little idea how it's going to look like, here is the part of the back I have worked so far.


I took the chair back and translated it into knit and purl stitches. The rose will be integrated in both front parts, I am still working on the details for that. Remember the pic of the Highland wool I posted a while ago? All of the colours will be used.

Following a pattern in a magazine can be very satisfiying - creating your own much more so, and exciting, too!
