All we’ve been hearing about lately is COVID-19, and most of us are practicing social distancing to protect the most vulnerable in our population. All of my patterns are 50% off until things are back to normal. Just type in the code TOGETHER (can be used more than once). Stay healthy and in the words of Elizabeth Zimmerman, “Knit on with confidence and hope through all crises”.

I love a stitch pattern that looks more complicated than it really is. I also am always on the lookout for a project to use up my large stash of variegated yarn. This fun 2-round chevron stitch is easy to memorize, plus it doesn’t get lost in a hand painted or self striping yarn. In fact, it enhances color changes and minimizes pooling in yarns that are prone to it.
I hand dyed the skein of Patons Classic Wool used in the sample, and can dye it to order in my Etsy shop.
