The natural colors of the beautiful Bijou Basin Ranch really spoke to me and I knew I just had to design a piece that would really showcase them. I found this dual cable pattern in a Japanese Stitch dictionary and immediately knew it was the one!

There is a matching fingerless glove pattern and hat pattern if you are interested in making it a set!
