Oya Flowers...


So last night I decided to make an oya flower since I hadn't made one for so long.  The only bad thing is that because I only have a smaller size nylon thread, it took a long time to work up the outer pink tube.  But anyway I dont think I'll have a use for it, I might embroider stem stitches and then lead them to the flower?  I dont know.  I dont even know if theres even a flower that looks like this i kind of just made it up lol.

These are some flat oyas I made last night aswel just out of boredom.  I'll probably add to it and make an example of flowers I know how to make, maybe I can use it as an example for people to pick to put on scarves they want done, or something else, I dont know..what would you use them for??

Hope all that read this are doing well, I'm having neighbour problems at the moment so this is the only thing calming me down!!

Well, that explains why it's so hard to find out anything about Oya. There's more now than when I looked a few years ago but information is still not all that easy to find. Thanks!

Theres books out there, Gina, but very hard to find sometimes so I've read. I was lucky to have a Turkish partner with a mother in law with a worlds worth of knowledge in all areas of Turkish craft. Thankyou for leaving a comment and I hope my future posts spark inspiration and admiration for you. Enjoy your day :)

I love your work and as a beginner at Oya knotted lace I hope that one day I will be able to make one such flower, at this stage I am just starting to get my knots to knot properly

Sydneyjo- Thankyou for your kind comments, I had a look at your store and you have some lovely items!

Joy- Hello from a fellow Australian! I have a few videos on youtube that might help you with your Oya, and I also sell some patterns on Ravelry and Etsy for mainly crochet oya, but theres one on etsy that is a needle lace technique. I plan to put more up but at the moment I'm busy with a whole lot of other things so I don't have the time to be writing up tutorials! But I hope in the near future to be doing that. Good luck with your endeavors! I hope to hear from you soon.
