Hey, guys! Been nearly 8 years since I've been on, and a lot has changed! But I have a serious question:
I'm finished with the body and one sleeve of a traditional Norwegian style sweater for my son. 100% baby alpaca, and it's turning out awesome... But I've hit a stumbling block. I want to do the traditional neckline with embroidery and a pewter frog, but I can't find a pattern for the cloth/embroidered portion.
I've seen a blog entry
Which shows how the material is set in. Makes sense. But how do you make THE MATERIAL PORTION??? My sewing skills are quite good, but without a pattern, I see this becoming shaped in the style of Dr. Seuss.
Help? (Photo attached FYE)
