More play with dropped stitches

I am interested in trying to introduce designs into drop stitch grounds, and my leaf obsession is at least temporarily back. In working with a vine shape, I found having the vine create the dropped stitches created a too loosely knit, unrecognizable fabric, so on to color reverse. The resulting swatch is a bit of a brain teaser : “find the vine”

the companion ruffle: these blocking pins are great for blocking, may be pressed over

both were a lesson in gauge; using same tension etc. as in blue shawl this scarf is inches narrower, and the ruffles were not wide enough , will have to be re knit; only difference in fabrics was the change in yarn color, not its composition. “Back to the drawing board”
