Celestial Magic Art Batt
"I have created a deep purple batt with flicks of green and deep red. I wanted this batt to have a lot of depth in it and pops of color that you wouldn't see from just looking at it. I pictured a beautiful black woman with a braids and beads in her hair with lavender clothing and all of her spell books on a shelf. She is mysterious and catching on all levels. She is more than what meets the eye, just like this batt. I have also dyed matching Mashum locks to go with this beautiful batt. I love the combo of deep purple with a striking green that jumps out at you. I have dyed various shades of green on bamboo, faux cashmere, cotton nepps and silk. That creates texture within the merino roving when you are looking at it as well as when you spin this batt."
Reply Hazy Intarsia Charts
The "Reply Hazy" sweater was actually my first ever knit sweater AND intarsia project. Go big, or go home, right? Though I don't have a full-out graded pattern for you all, I do have both charts available for free below! I recommend working the charts on size 7 or smaller needles so that the gauge of them will fit onto a sweater. As for the words shown on the triangle side, I cut out and hand stitched wool felt directly onto the fabric! You can do this, duplicate stitch embroidery, or more intarsia to get the look!
