This freeform piece was worked using odds and ends of many different creamy-coloured yarns that I had in my stash, plus a little bit of brown, grey and yellow mixed in for contrast.
It is mostly crochet, but also includes a couple of areas in knitted linen stitch. These sections were worked using 3 colours, alternating 1 colour per row. I like the little spots of colour and the textured effect that linen stitch gives when it is worked this way.
For the bullions, I chose a lovely single-ply pure silk yarn that has plenty of body ('spaghetti' from The Loom in Bangkok). It was originally created as a weaving yarn, but it crochets and knits up fabulously too.
