Stacked Pyramid from base pattern

This is my version of the stacked pyramid. I want to learn to adapt the base line stitches and bring them both up and down over the seam. In this one I worked up, then down, added beads and kept with two weights of thread, one a size 12 perle silk and the other two strands of needle necessities. The beads are metallics in black and in abalone from mill hill.

Build A Seam Week Eleven

This is a very poor picture of a stacked pyramid base pattern, but it is soft pink silk perle on tafetta. I will add the seam below that I created from this one.

Miss Kerry, I hope you meant it when you said it is never to late to join in a challenge. I hope to go back and do the other ten seams over the coming week.

Collars and cuffs

While waiting to catch dh's cold and flu I had started some collars and cuffs and would like to share my results with you. I have adapted various patterns I have seen on line. The tall neck version is available in a different stitch on as well as the base pattern for some of the cuffs, others were just made up as I went along.
I have not decided if I will rewrite the patterns or not as I did not take any notes while I was crocheting and would have to start from scratch again, but as I now have his flu, I doubt this would be done before the end of the year.
