The Big Fish ~ El Gran Pez

I often do tiny, tiny things… Now for a drastic change of scale!

¡Drástico cambio de escala, de lo pequeñito, chiquitito, diminuto a lo enorme!

The knitting pattern was created by Jana, based on a genius Escher design. It is not meant to be big, but small and repeating. Do not miss visiting her blog, so you can admire it in all its wonder! Her use of different stitches to create the fish textures is superb. And she also has another Escher pattern, featuring fish and duck and turtles.

El patrón para tejerlo lo hizo Jana, basada en un diseño genial de Escher. La idea no es que sea enorme, sino pequeño y repetitivo. ¡No dejen de visitar su blog, para apreciar esta maravilla! El uso de los distintos puntos para crear las texturas del pez es magistral. Y tiene otro patrón de Escher más, con peces, patos y tortugas…

One day I may make a whole bedspread, but that is dreaming for now!

Algun día tal vez haga todo un cubrecamas, pero eso es soñar por ahora…

It was so easy to start, almost on a whim, just casting on 4 stitches… I can see this being a fun and engaging long project. Here are my ravelry notes about the knitting of this single one.

Fue tan facil empezar, casi por antojo, montando sólo 4 puntos… Me doy cuenta que puede ser un proyecto largo pero atrapante y divertido. Acá están mis notas de ravelry sobre el tejido de este solitario.

There, another view for scale – it just fits in the bath tub!

Ahi tienen otra vista para que tengan una escala – ¡entra justo en la bañera!

I love having such a striking bath mat!

    Hi there,

    ever since I saw that huge fish of yours at ravelry, I have wanted to make one for my own bathroom! What a great idea and inspired way to use the chart for the fish! :o) I so admire your work, thanks a lot for sharing it here.

    Btw, this is the first time I am seeing your blog and it´s fun to read about your crafts.

      Thanks for stopping by, Jana!

      I am thinking, the fish from the “On the shore” blanket would probably make an even better mat, as it does not have a the thin tail part…Or the turtles! those would be so cool as entrance mats too!

        Oh yeah! That´s so true. All of them would make good mats as well. :o) Do you have any plans? 😉

          Not exactly plans, not. But I am pondering what material could be used to make a turtle door mat. The poor fish in the bathroom gets quite a beating so the same one is out of the question for heavy duty stepping.
