A new lei in progress

Here’s a picture of the new lei. I wanted to share it for two reasons. It uses the other pattern that’s easy to make with two colors. It’s kind of a checkerboard, or maybe a lazy spiral. Also, the last of the darned spots are just braided in here. I’m happy with how it turned out. The darning made the ribbon quite stiff, so I was afraid those patches wouldn’t bend or hold their folds right. But they’re fine; I can’ spot the darning unless I look carefully.

  1. I wouldn't have known it was darned from the picture, so it looks like it came out well. :) I like the checkerboard patter.

    1. Thanks. I have to practically hold it and study it to be sure I've found the right spot. {Smile}

      I'm glad you like the pattern. I think it makes a nice change from the tight spiral. {Smile}
