Recently (like just a couple weeks ago), Dave B. purchased one of my Blog Reader Specials. This one, to be specific, a skein of Knitterman’s Fingering, BRS13-218:
And now look what he’s done with it!
This particular stitch pattern would be interesting in two contrasting solids, but by combining a multi-color yarn with a high contrast solid, he is creating a look far more dramatic and definitely one-of-a-kind. Kudos to Dave! Because of all the colors showing through, it only looks more complicated than it is. Once you follow the stitch pattern, you can let the color variations do the visual magic!
As it happens, I have one remaining skein of Knitterman’s Fingering, already dyed and showing on the BRS page, which is BRS13-220:
This one could be combined with white/undyed, a deep forest green or midnight green, or several other earthtone solids to create a similarly dramatic effect.
