Pattern Description:

Pattern includes written directions, glossary, and is fully charted. Tech edited by Katherine Vaughan.

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

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.
