Fiber Dreams Thornbury PDF
The oriel stitch used in Fiber Dreams Thornbury is very old. It’s evidently named for an architectural element of the same name found in Gothic revival structures in the United Kingdom. In architecture, an oriel is a bay window that projects from an upper floor that is supported from below with a bracket or corbel. Unlike a bay window, it does not itself extend to the ground. The windows in the oriels were often decorated with leaded or stained glass in beautiful designs. Thornbury is knit on the bias, starting in one corner, and increasing on every right-side row. It is knit even through the body, then decreased to the point on the far end.
