This post is a continuation of my previous one, titled: Feeling Good about Šticle.
As I mentioned before, Šticle (commonly found in Croatian nošnje, from the Panonian regions) are my main inspiration here. Their decorative beauty and unique patterning really drew me in.
I have been working with this beautiful yarn that is spun with a metallic ribbon. Although it is a little tricky to see in photos, this yarn gives a subtle, yet beautiful sparkle
So far, I have come up with two styles that I am really happy with. The first is more like a fingerless glove. I took a lot of time to formulate a pattern that shapes the glove in a way that fits the hand very comfortably and easily. These little gloves are too cute!
I even created room along the edge rib to weave a ribbon through.
My first three completed designs are available in my Etsy store!
The second style of Šticle-inspired wristlets are more true to the inspiration.
The knit work stops right at the wrist line, and I finish it off with some abstract/floral crochet patterning.
They are still on the needles… so stay tuned for So Sweet Šticle ~ pt. 2
p.s. I’m having fun with buttons…
