Monday Mood – Tweed and Flecked 3

A swatch with the unlikely combination of Aran Donegal Tweed and sparkly Eyelash yarn is the centrepiece of our Monday Mood this week. We think the silver eyelash works really well but should be used quite subtly for good effect! We have started with a trim of a plain grey melange wool, then a couple of rows of eyelash, then a bramble stitch in the tweed.

The pieces featured alongside the swatch show how to use tweedy effects in sections of a garment rather than all-over, one in large blocks the other in a giant zigzag pattern, (not strictly tweed we know as it looks like a birds eye effect) – but both really clever and effective.
