Becoming crochet _purple_ by Angele Lumiere

 

Voici mon design "Judith Leyster's shawl crochet", ce châle est inspiré par lòeuvre de Judith Leyster, peintre  néerlandaise . Elle travailla avec Frans Hals, dont elle fut la disciple fidèle. Judith Leyster commence à peindre à un très jeune âge et, à vingt-quatre ans, devient membre de la guilde des peintres de sa ville natale. Elle traite alors des sujets tels que les scènes de divertissements dans des tavernes et les portraits de musiciens, et réalise des scènes de genre domestiques. Nombre des toiles de Judith Leyster ont été attribuées à des contemporains masculins.

Ce châle est crocheté avec 50 gr de fil d'alpaca et soie, Drops Lace, crochet 3mm.

Theodore Schrevel’s comment about Judith Leyster puns on her name, which means “guide star,” but the artist was a star in her hometown. She was only 19 when an earlier city chronicler, Samuel Ampzing, praised her as a painter of “good and keen insight,” after having posed the rhetorical question, “Who has ever seen paintings by a daughter?” Samuel Ampzing, Beschrijvinge ende Lof der stad Haelem in Holland, 1628, trans. Irena van Thiel-Stroman, “Judith Leyster,” in Painting in Haarlem, 1500-1850: The Collection of the Frans Hals Museum, ed. Neeltje Köhler (Ghetn, 2006) 224. In Holland, as in the rest of Europe, professional women painters were indeed uncommon. Leyster was one of only two women accepted as a master in Haarlem’s painters’ guild during the entire 17th century.
For all the acclaim granted Judith Leyster during her lifetime, she almost vanished from memory after her death. Today as many as 35 works are recognized as hers, but until the late 19th century her name and work were almost entirely forgotten: all her paintings were in the limbo of the “unattributed” or assigned to someone else, particularly Hals or Leyster’s husband, fellow Haarlem painter Jan Miense Molenaer.

Pattern Judith Leyster's shawl crochet

This design is inspired by the figure of Judith Leyster. She was only 19 when an earlier city chronicler, Samuel Ampzing, praised her as a painter of “good and keen insight”. In Holland, as in the rest of Europe, professional women painters were indeed uncommon. Leyster was one of only two women accepted as a master in Haarlem’s painters’ guild during the entire 17th century.

Today as many as 35 works are recognized as hers, but until the late 19th century her name and work were almost entirely forgotten: all her paintings were in the limbo of the “unattributed” or assigned to

I imagine this wise woman wearing this beautiful shawl on her shoulders.

The body of the wrap begins with a small number of stitches and then gradually increases. After the widest point is reached, the number of stitches gradually decrease until a very long triangle is achieved.

The different lace patterns within the piece make it interesting, and the simplicity of the shaping allows for personal adjustments, dependent on yarn and size required.
The pattern is very easy to modulate in a bigger size if necessary.
