Classical orders

There are many knitted things on the web these days, but not much knitted Architecture. In order to redress this imbalance I have started knitting Classical Orders.
I started with the Ionic working from memory.

Then continued with the corinthian capital.

For this one i used Banister Fletcher.
It is difficult to make acanthus leaves look as if they are made of stone, they tend to take a more natural look in the medium of wool.

Anyway it is very photogenic.
Thats it for now.
