For the complete story behind the pattern, including photo tips, please check out my blog: "Insanity Meets Its Match." www.lnlecochicknits.blogspot.com

Optional: in order to alter the color wave, I stripped one strand of yarn off, flipped it, and rewound the yarn before beginning. This completely optional step changes the color wave from solid black on one end to solid cherry on the other. By rearranging the strands, I knit it up with 3 strands black and 1 strand cherry on one end and 3 strands cherry and 1 strand black on the other. However, the pattern looks great either way! This just provides a very unique effect.
