drizzle play

This morning I have been having a play with drizzle stitch. I cannot remember where I read about it but this is what I came up with.

Using one needle I casted on the thread 10 times, I then added another needle and casted on over both needles 10 times, a third needle was added and casted on over all three needles

Next I removed the third needle and casted on over the other 2 10 times.

Finally I casted on 10 times over the origonal needle,   then the fun began, re threaded the needle and tried to pull it through, this took a bit of gentle persuasion but the final result I think was worth it.

I worked another 2, the whitevarigated yellow was worked over 2 needles, 10 sts, then 15 over both and another 15 over origonal needle.
The green one was stitched like the first.

not too pleased with the photo, think this might be a bit better

unfortunately my photography is not very good sorry about that.

Think I will now try with some wool and play a bit more     watch this space.

Oh my, that sounds like a lot of effort!

Your play with the Drizzle stitch is impressive! I, too, tried to use two needles, one much thicker than the one I used to pull the thread through with. The result was no good, too loose and easily deformed.

Margaret, I used my tatting needles to make my drizzles and it worked great! If you don't have access to tatting needles, and long doll-making needle will work, too.

Wow - so neat that you used more than one needle Margaret and your photos look good :)

What a fun drizzle! When you described this in a comment on my blog I visualized it quite different.

How nice you played with more than one needle. I would never think of that.
This has a lot of possibilities, organic growing things with different widths. Thank you for showing!

I definitely think you are well and truly back into the swing of things in a big way. How clever of you to think of adding needles to work the drizzle stitch and what a great effect. Congratulations my friend.
