This is a top-down pattern with shifting panels of different textures that really show off longer color change and tweedy/woolly yarns.
In case you're wondering about the name... I had a hard time coming up with a name for this one and I just kept thinking about the color and how a good friend of mine (an avid birder) calls this color "rufus" - and thus the name. :)

I've been crafting since forever, knitting fanatically since about 2006 and designing since 2008. When not knitting, I teach university students about primates and play with my horses.
