There was enough interest, so I wrote up the pattern. I’ve reviewed the instructions and the charts, but no one else has knit it yet. So, please tell me if you find any errors.
While I knit this in a worsted weight yarn (which was fast and took a week even with all the botched versions of the edging) I think this would be lovely in sock weight or even lace weight.
The stitch pattern really works nicely with variegated yarns, but would still be lovely in a solid too.
Enjoy the pattern!
