approx. 10" x 10"

Description

To propose knit/crochet projects for publication, I have made many swatches and sketches since the early 1990s. This one was probably for a publication of Bond America, a company that marketed and sold a hobby knitting machine and a mechanical knitting nancy, which cranked out I-cord very quickly. I used both machines to make the swatch. The design was never accepted for publication, but that's how it often goes for freelance designers. The background is knitted with a tan mohair-blend yarn. I used many types of red yarn for the I-cord.
