Solomon's Knot (aka Lover's Knot) Vest

Recommended Posts

I tried my hand at the Solomon's Knot. Here is the result. It makes me feel like I'm back in the sixties.

That's lovely!  Gramma's a real hip chick!  ;) I'm glad you persevered (I assumed this is the project you were muttering under your breath about in earlier posts).

Sharon that is very pretty!:). I really like that.

I never tried Salomon's Knot and from what I read I probably never will LOL.

I just do not think I would have that much passions and make it to the end.... :angry

Krys, it's not that difficult to do and it goes quick.  The biggest complaint I have is that I can't eyeball the loop size.  So, I had to use a measuring tool to make sure they were fairly even.  I used my thumb and made the knots too tight on it.  It got really sore.  That meant I could only do so many a day.  Instead of crocheting for a few hours each day, I was only crocheting for 15-30 minutes per day.  I kept trying to make the loops a bit looser on my thumb, but the yarn I was working with was slippery.  Give it a try!  You might really enjoy it.
