On the eighth day of Knitmas…

Day Eight – Amber Waves

Today’s pattern is inspired by Kristen Jancuk’s Amber Waves sweater from issue nine : iowa / nebraska. Kristen used a monochromatic palette by adding mohair to the charted stitches, creating a beautiful textured design. We’re using all of our colorway combinations today to create colorwork waves on a background of Color 4.

The directions in [brackets] are also shown in the chart below.
