Colors on Hand for Rosanna Afghan - Pattern in 4-Ply Knitting Worsted
Pull four colors from stash and work four complimentary pattern stitch rounds for a textural motif result. First round of motif is a popping center of "Extended Double Crochet Clusters" (a new exclusive Skerin stitch), then four open petals a la Irish Crochet, third round stabilizes the petal formation, and the final two rounds in chenille stitch create finishing touch of depth. Add two more colors - a brown and black border worked in rounds (another new pattern stitch!) provide rich depth. Bonus: second motif option. In 4-ply worsted; 44" x 44"
