Sock yarn, fingering weight, a variety of variegated colors.
What was your inspiration?
This pattern was inspired by a beautiful piece of fabric I saw on the backing of an old quilt. It was a classic style of flame stitching that I thought would adapt well to a knitting pattern and would also be a great way to use up scraps of sock yarn.
What are you most proud of?
I love the way this pattern works with all kinds of variegated yarns. Even with the yarns I look at and think, "What WAS I thinking when I bought that?" look great in this pattern!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Just be sure you are working with similar weight yarns and you will have a lot of fun watching the colors change.
