Baltimore Tea Party is a micro-macro experimentation with pattern, color, and texture: The arrow pattern on the body and sleeeves is the large-scale version of the twisted stitches around the hem, cuffs, and collar.

Knit yours in a variegated yarn plus a solid for a soft effect like mine (which reminds me of teacups and dried flowers), or choose high-contrast solids for a more graphic effect.
