Slip Stitch Crochet Lace Possibilities

Woke up this morning and saw this:
It could only mean that fairyfolk got into my yarn stash while I slept. 

I don't know if they forgot to take this swatch with them, or what. Maybe they're hinting at something. I'm not even sure what the fairies mean it to be, but get this: 

These are slip stitches. I can see why the wee folk favor slip stitch lace--slip stitches being all about small and all. 

I'm seeing a wide shallow triangular wrap. I hope I can figure out how they made slip stitches look like that.

Full moons embolden fairies, and we just had that super-full moon the other day. If I've noticed that moonlight makes my yarn stash glow, surely fairies have too. Seems to make linen yarn magnetic for them too. Luckily they left my beaded silk and glittery mohair alone! (Wouldn't be easy to rip out fairy crochet swatches with those yarns.)


  1. Those darn fairies! Well, you never know where the next great idea will come from...

  2. How pretty! Just goes to show that sl st crochet doesnt have to be just rows and rows of monotony....BRAVO! I hope to see more designs like this. :)

  3. Beautiful post for a beautiful piece!

  4. This is SO beautiful!

  5. That's amazing Vashti! You are so creative :)

  6. This has got me intrigued. I haven't done much lace with the slip stitch.

  7. Looks like another technique I should try out... Thanks for sharing!
