Pattern: Fresco by Pam Allen. Interweave Knits, Fall ’08.
Yarn: RYC Cashcotton in Ecru, Cyclamen and Chartreuse.
Needles: 2.75mm and 3.25mm DPNs
Modifications: Only used 3 colours. A few unintentional modifications too!
My first attempt at colourwork. I didn’t intend for these to be anything more than a swatch for something bigger and better actually, but I quite like them. They are busting with mistakes of course! And I don’t imagine they’ll last very long before getting pulled horrendously out of shape, as the yarn doesn’t have much memory. But hey…they’re pink!!!
I am obviously quite ‘free-style’ in my approach to stranded knitting! I think it’ll be some time before I get this gauge/float sorted too, so don’t be holding your breath for any Eunny Jang-style brilliance!
