Tresselating Fish, more new yarn




I bought some Vanna's Choice Lion Brand Yarn, and "hey Mikey", I liked it! I also found a pattern that I liked that I saw on Ravelry, called Tresselating Fish. It is apparently an old pattern found in Knitter's Magazine, and a lady out in blogland sort of figured out how to work a similar pattern. I am really liking the way it is working up. The bottom "fish" looks brown in this light, but it is really a mossy green color! The "fish" are fairly fast and easy, and I hope to eventually have an afghan of some sort in the fall colors I have picked out. I will post as I progress..................

That is really a neat idea and your little fish look good. I have been a crocheter of granny squares for years but couldn't quite get the hang of regular crochet. I have been a quiltmaker for about 30 years and I really enjoy it but still wanted to crochet. I have made a tessalating quilt but it is a straight edge pattern, nothing like those fish. Some quilt artists have made quilts that are made with lots of curves or other unusual shapes. I wouldn't even want to try that. But looking at the fish, I think that would be easier because the yarn has give-unlike fabrics. The stretch will allow you to work better with the pieces. I happened upon the ripple, granny and crochet alongs a few months ago and seeing all the wonderful things, I was determined to learn crochet. After much starting and ripping out and a lot of practice I finally have gotten the basics of crochet. I'm making a ripple afghan and doing some simple little amigurumi things so I'm getting comfident. The fish look like something I'd like to try.

The fish are adorable..how do you like Vanna's yarn? I'm Greeneyes on Ravelry, by the way and you are?

I love that yarn too. I just wish the price would come down a little. I don't like paying extra just for Vanna's name. Love the whole fishy blanket. Can't wait to see it finished. Wishing there was a crochet version.

Happy Belated Birthday!!!
