It’s been over a year since we last checked in on the beautiful work of Russian paper artist and graphic designer Yulia Brodskaya (previously featured here), who creates vibrant, lyrical illustrations using quilling or paper filigree as well as other sculptural techniques. Brodskaya has been experimenting with paper quilling for over six years and now, in addition to progressing with her personal artwork, creates high-profile commissions for people and companies such as fashion designer Issey Miyake, Godiva chocolates, an Paramount films.
Visit Yulia Brodskaya’s website to check out more of her work, both professional and personal. She’s also featured in the wonderful new book Paper Cut: An Exploration Into the Contemporary World of Papercraft Art and Illustration compiled by paper artist Owen Gildersleeve [Buy on Amazon].
This is my version of a flame stitch, inspired by vintage missoni, fall leaves, and bargello needlepoint books from the 1970s. It is called Fox Paws because it has these little interlocking feet in the pattern. This style of knitting creates wavy stripes without the need for floats or traditional color-work techniques. You can see that the back doesn’t have any weird stuff going on.
I’m really proud of this sample, it took 2 tries because I turned out to be allergic to the first yarn.
This pattern is due for release next Tuesday , the 9th. It is a relative of the petal cowl and builds on the skills and stitches introduced in that pattern.
