A journal of my adventures in the fiber arts. I've played with different wool and fibers, plus different types of weaving, knitting, spinning, felting and more. I tend to gravitate toward primitive types of fiber projects.

Peruvian Cross Rep Variations
Peruvian Cross Rep braid variations. There is something wrong with this picture. The last red cross is not covered by white on the outside. The pattern is supposed to be created by pulling the red yarn through the white yarn. On the last switch, I goofed and pulled the white yarn through the red.
Here is the braid again. The left side is correct. I pulled the red through the white. The right side is pulled through the red. Which is incorrect for this pattern. But look below.
A mistake done on purpose becomes a design feature. The braid begins with white covering the dark.
In the middle area, white covers red on left and red covers white on right, forming a pattern where red and white stripes meander down the braid together.
Then I reversed the pattern and red covers white on the bottom section of the braid.
