The Bohus Studio is famous for its intricate patterning for good reason. As this gauntlet grows you will find the subtle difference in blues to be quite lovely. The occasional splash of red mirrors both the rust color that appears in some icebergs and the temper of Nora that finally flared at the end of the play.

Consider weaving in or otherwise trapping your ends as you knit. You will save yourself quite a lot of stitching work (not to mention annoyance) at the end.

NOTE: This pattern also contains directions for dyeing your own unique yarn colors.
