FESTIVUS TYPO - written directions:

Row 11 reads:
K4, YO, SSK, K2,YO, SSK, K1, K2tog, YO, K3; rep from to last 2 stitches, K2.

Should read:
K4, YO, SSK, K2, YO, SSK, K1, K2tog, YO, K3; rep fromto last 2 stitches, K2.

One too many asterisks…sigh…

I used a yarnover/SSK pattern with a zigzag built in.

Kept the pattern simple so it doesn’t overwhelm the color change.

Yet strong enough lines that the yarn doesn’t obscure the pattern.

Beginning lace knitter. Both charted and written directions.

I made mine in the Silk Garden Lite, but you could easily substitute regular Silk Garden or Kureyon, swap the needle up a couple sizes and decrease the number of repeats.

Festivus - for the rest of us!
