TAST 2007 - knotted buttonhole band, reversed buttonhole bar

Knot and bar the buttonhole!

Here's my combined sample for knotted buttonhole band and reversed buttonhole bar.

Worked mostly in knitting yarns on a coarse evenweave fabric with a sprinkling of french knots, a little laid work and some simple counted stitches.

I worked the two rows at the top in zigzag fashion, over two rows of alternate straight stitches. I also used the straight stitches to work reversed buttonhole bar in green, instead of the foundation buttonhole row.

I went back to the first, rejected sampler I started for knotted buttonhole bar, reverse buttonhole and rice stitch.

I'm not at all pleased with it, but I couldn't waste the fabric and all those empty spaces! I do like the circle with the laid work inside it, it's almost crewel! And I like the ribbon threaded through the knotted buttonhole bar.
