Madagascar Rug – Progress 2

I only work on this one day a week, so progress is slow. But I’ve completed the first band and wanted to show it off. This band will repeat on the right side of the rug as well.

Madagascar -2

The gray stripes between the small bands were stitch with gray Splendor using two plies. The stitch is Skip Tent with the stitches slanted down on the left side and up on the right side. This now measures 6.25″ long and 1.25″ wide. Now to move on to the other overdyed thread from Colour Complements – a purple/blue thread. This will be back when the next band is done.

  1. You wrote in your progress 1 post about the Madacasgar rug that it won’t look the same as the original but that you wanted the feel of it. I think you’re doing a great job getting that feel of the original. I like the way the overdyed changes colors without you having to manage more thread colors.
