Nesting.....

After Fleegle commented about nesting the motifs rather than stacking them, I swatched again last night and came up with this.....



Here's a full view so you can compare the two....


Mmmmm I like both, but perhaps the nested ones should be nearer to each other?

Comments as always greatfully received....

Heres my opinion - as a non-expert LOL

I love both ways, but slightly prefer the nesting ones. I think if they nested any closer you would lose the visual impact of the nests.

Either way, its a beautiful piece of work : )

i'm unsure of the nested ones. I think if you have i prefer your first method. :s

I like the nested version, but I might remove one or two rows of plain knitting so they seem to cuddle a bit.

all comments are gratefully recieved and appreciated as sometimes when I spend a lot of time with something I get too focused in trying to get it right I invariably fall out with it :(

I am going to take two rows out and try the nesting effect again just to see the effect of the patterns closer together.....

Then I am going to make a decision which format the pattern repeat will take, cast off an experiment with a border.....
