Our Fearless Leader, Toni Buckby, has given permission for participants to share the original image and the design from it she has derived and provided for the Unstitched Coif project. I am doing this as an echo for convenience of the project itself, since the we have been requested NOT to share links to the in-group project repository. Since this design is not my own and is totally subject to project rules, I will remove this post when and if requested.
First – the project’s photo of V&A accession number T.844-1974, Click here or on the image below.
Now the print-me files that make up Ms. Buckby’s rendition of the coif’s pattern. Click on the links below to open these PDF files, then save them locally. Note that they are formatted for A4 size paper. That’s a bit longer than standard US letter size. For best results, print on A4 at the presented size (don’t shrink in the print process), then tile the pieces together. There’s enough overlap to make this quite easy.
The official project website is here.
As for my own progress, there’s a tiny bit since the last post. But what’s always striking to me is how the designs bloom once the outlines are added. Compare!
Yes, I am working the design upside down right now. That little bug on the right is not supposed to be seen doing handstands.
Tell Toni “Thank You!” for allowing you to share the pattern. Know I will never stitch it, but it’s going into my files of “wonderful things I want to stitch”.
As for the A4 paper, just happen to have a ream of it that was purchased to print out miniature books that don’t fit on US sized printing paper. Another hobby that took me down the rabbit hole!
thank you for sharing this wonder pattern!
Yes, the outlining makes all the difference, doesn’t it – emphasis and definition all together.
