What is it becoming? Crystal Palace Sausalito
What are you most proud of?
* textured knit and purl for pleasing reversibility
* undulating movement of color (to emphasize yarn with long runs of color)
* self-shaping edges
* and of course beaded accents here and there to add to the interest, rather than detract from the flowing colors of the yarn
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
This project is good for the advancing beginner because the row has a small number of stitches and the stitch pattern is easy to see and memorize. Peek-a-Bead will also appeal to the skilled knitter looking for some relatively mindless knitting yet something to retain the interest.
