(An Homage to Ravelry’s Greatest Knits, In Three Sizes)

As always, thank you to Auburn Needleworks,
(Good Friends, who like to roll balls of yarn at me and watch me chase them like a puppy!)

Every Artisan and Craftsperson stands on the shoulders of those who designed and crafted before. I am grateful for the generosity of those who have shared their artistry and skill (especially on Ravelry). For that, this pattern is an assemblage of little moments of delight found in many patterns, which can be found on that site, as a heartfelt Homage to those artists - and the ones that came before them. It is my birthday - so here is my gift back to you!

YARN: The pattern is assembled in three sizes. Any yarn, up to worsted weight, should work.

(1) The Smallest will require approx. 200-220 yards. The samples are in Cascade 220 (with yardage to spare) done on a size Size 9, 24” circular needle. Best with thicker yarns, (pink and purple samples). Finished size is approx. 36” long, by 13.5” high, after light blocking.

(2) The Medium (Regular) sample was approximately 300 yards. The one pictured was done with Noro’s Taiyo Sock Yarn (which shows a great striping pattern) on Size 7, 24” Circular needle. Lightly blocked, it was 44” long, by 18” high. (See 1st Photo)

(3) The Extended (Large) version used approx 350 yards of Malabrigo Rios (Pure Merino Superwash – Worsted) in Liquidambar using a Size 9, 24” + Circular needle. Lightly blocked, the finished size is 52” long, by 23” high.
