Same type

What would happen if you knit a (chequered) pattern in a narrow width? I thought it would be a challenge. The result was a realisation that drawing a (checkerboard) pattern with fewer gaps (in 08/2019) is impossible with amateur skills and an understanding that it is important to "start with what you can do, not what you can't do".
It was completed about a year later, as the web construction work was prioritised during the production (renewal on 13 August 2020).
However, after a period of interruption, a new idea for the handle was developed: the combination of "12-round weave, 6-round weave and flat weave", which is only possible because of the softness of the material Fortuna Pearl.
The handle (grip) uses a transparent vinyl hose outer diameter Φ10 mm as the core material, which is normally used as a handle cover in PP bands, and the caulking is also reinforced by passing the caulking through this core material. Exactly the way anyone might not think of doing it. It took a long time to complete, but it was a prototype that made future production fun.

This prototype was not sold, but given as a gift to a regular customer after this product description was uploaded.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the history of the product?

A list of past products and prototypes that anyone can check at any time that has been sold by Handicrafts Store☆ALAUDAE.
The categories and list will continue to increase as we continue to produce and prototype!

Is there a resale of product history?

If there are many requests for production of sold-out items, we may consider reselling them!
However, I also have a web construction business as a side job, and when I'm busy with web work, I can't do any craft work. Resale will be considered only if the creator has the luxury of doing handicraft work.

What does out of stock mean in the product history?

I want to shorten the time it takes to write a new article on a blog, etc., so I make good use of the electronic commerce (EC site) system and display items that are out of stock in the product history. Please think of it as a state where it can be resold once it is produced.
