Pattern Description from Scarf Style: “Jo Sharp finds that working with a painted yarn always brings a surprise. ‘I never know how the fabric will look until it’s finished. If I work on a straight stockinette-stitch piece, the result is stripey. However, when I work with a lacey stitch or crochet, the result is variegated and irregular.’ In this case, the soft, modulated colors of the yarn she’s used have a painterly feel, like an antique watercolor of a misty rose garden. The yarn’s colors and mood work well with the old-fashioned, graceful Feather and Fan stitch pattern.”
