Stain Glass Fish – Wide Cut

Jane McGown Flynn design,  P836 (16″x 16″)

Primitive pattern hooked in 6 cut. The full design is outlined.
The central motive, the fish, is hooked with different colors of dip dye for the tail and fins.
The face is hooked with a solid yellow and the head with a dip dye wool brown to gold.
The water in the circle is hooked, with two different colors of turquoise.
The motive behind the circle represents the sea water with the sea weeds. The sea weeds are hooked with a dip dye wool which goes yellow-green to beige and the water in a solid silver green wool.

I enlarged the original size of the pillow up to 20″x 20″, hooking a border using in an alternate way two different colors of wool, one in blue and the other in  red-orange.
I finished the pattern as a pillow. On the edge I sewed a cotton trim composed of two different colors of the same material, one in red and the other one in yellow, placing the red on the top. The back of the pillow is made with a synthetic material.
