Cathedral Scarf – Gothic Architecture inspired

Gothic Cathedral Scarf with a Architectural Rose Window design from the ART-chitecture Collection, merino wool scarf. This unique scarf is designed and handmade by Valerie of Valerie Baber Designs. This scarf shows the Rose Window from the outside of beautiful Gothic Architectural Buildings and Cathedrals of the past. Made with hand painted merino wool in a beautiful ivory stone colour. Also available in a gray stone colour.

You can order or purchase this design in a beautiful ivory or gray on my Etsy store at:  www.valeriebaberdesigns.etsy.com

The inspiration for this design is from beautiful photo’s a customer sent me shown below (thanks Marie) of the Cathedral de l’Assomption in Clermont Ferrand also called Cathédrale Notre-Dame-de-l’Assomption. This beautiful cathedral is a wonderful example of Gothic Architecture with the beautiful stained glass windows, pointed arches, spires and other stunning features. The cathedral is a French National Monument and was built from black lava rock through the 13th and 14th centuries. Built out of black lava stone from a local volcano.

On my Gothic Cathedral Scarf design I placed the 3 small stained glass windows near the point of the arch as shown in the first picture. Floral stone tracery on the outside of the stained glass window and other windows on Cathedrals of the past are often a design feature. I placed quatrefoils that I pulled from another window on this beautiful cathedral to surround the centre flower of the rose stained glass window. The quatrefoil pattern is often seen on many buildings in this era. I also changed the centre flower to a 6 petal flower to fit on the scarf. Changes on my scarf were made and are not exactly as the cathedral in order for me to fit the stone tracery design onto the scarf. I did use other design features on this beautiful cathedral to give the same design essence. The overall raised effect of the stone tracery forming the stained glass rose window pattern is accomplished by the use of the various sizes of flowers. Floral touches are seen throughout Gothic Architecture in the stained glass and stone tracery. So many beautiful examples are seen around the world. I am totally addicted to this architecture style. The amazing and extremely talented people involved in all the aspects of making such stunning designs inspires me everyday.

New Architectural Designs photo page

Architectural Designs by Valerie Baber

Added a new photo page on my Blog with various pictures of my Architectural adventures over the years with fibre. I had the honour of designing for various galleries which often included my architectural pieces some shown here. My love for architecture began while taking Interior Design. Since then it has been a passion for me to create designs with knitting and crochet that are inspired by the amazing artists, designers, architects and all the people involved in making such extraordinary buildings of the past. This is a small sample of the many designs I have created with an architectural theme. You can link to the page below that shows more of my architectural designs.

I hope to pattern some of these designs and other crochet patterns with an architectural essence this year. A wonderful customer has recently sent me various photos of beautiful cathedrals etc. in France and I am looking forward to using them for a new architectural inspiration and creating a new crochet pattern from these wonderful photos. Thank you Marie for sending them to me. I really appreciate it! It is great having photos from your travels instead of relying on the internet. Here are a few of the inspiring photos below:

One day I hope to travel to France and other European locations. Fun fact: We do have a small piece of France on the East Coast of Canada! It is a French Territory. You can read more on these links below.

Enjoy the inspiration in your life today. You never know where it will come from. Perhaps someone who lives in another country will help direct you in your newest adventure like my renewed inspiration to design architectural crochet pieces because a customer was so kind to share their travel photos with me. I can’t wait to begin designing with these photos and other architectural features from buildings of the past.
