Wålstedts Tvåändsstickningsgarn Nm 4,7/2

A vest made for the Wålstedts Textile Art Competition with the theme “handmade fashion to express the singularity of the self”. I am a forestlover and forestowner, I live my whole life in the middle of a big forest, and then also with bonsai as my hobby: I see only pines and spruces every day, so I had to make pines and spruces on my vest.

I used the z-twist yarn, because I had read it would be good for crochet. I found that it is actually the opposite… it twists more than normal yarn and become entangled quicker!

The winners of the competition are here: (OK, I didn’t win first price, but my name is a bit down, under the “Wålstedts price”!)
