Scarf base – I used 1 skein DK 256 yards / 234 m per of DK weight by Sweetgeorgia Yarns. You can use most DK weight yarns for this design.

Flowers and Leaves (solid coloured scarf) – I used approximately 105 yards / 96 m sock weight or fingerling weight mini skein or other yarn of the same weight for the flowers and leaves.

Architectural Inspiration scarf – Milan Cathedral

More Architectural Inspiration scarves with a floral stone tracery feel.  All of these designs are available for order at http://www.valeriebaberdesigns.etsy.com  This group of scarves new this season were inspired once again by the many Gothic Cathedrals of the past especially the Milan Cathedral.  This amazing building was designed and built by many architects, artists, craftsmen and so many more.  It is one of the most decorated Gothic Cathedrals that took over 200 years to build.  The various architects used a lot of floral inspiration in their stone tracery throughout the Milan Cathedral as shown below.

The various floral accents on the Floral Tracery Gothic Cathedral Inspired scarves were inspired by the Milan Cathedral and other Gothic Cathedrals of the past.  As mentioned in  my previous blogs I will be restarting my Architectural project as you can see why.  There is so much inspiration that I felt I needed to go another direction and begin my project with various Architectural buildings to pull my inspiration from.  I will be adding these designs to my work soon for Fall and Winter 2015/16.

It amazes me the incredible amount of work that has gone into these beautiful buildings.  I am awed at their creativity and design as each Gothic Cathedral stands alone in unique stature expressing the Architect, Artist and Craftsmen ideas and design skills that have stood for many years in their beautiful strength.  The Gothic Architecture era had a huge impact on how we design and build today.

Check my website soon for dates I am at the local St. Albert Farmers Market in the fall as well some of my work will be at another booth by the library at the Wiggles and Giggles booth.  Website:  www.vbaberdesigns.com

You can also purchase my designs locally at the http://www.artgalleryofstalbert.ca and the http://www.albertacraft.ab.ca

Have yourselves a wonderful week full of inspiration!
