Vicki’s design brings in tapestry crochet techniques and yarn held double for a cosy project that gets really clever with colour.

Yarn used
DROPS Karisma
1 ball each of Wine Red 48 (A), orange 11 (B), Dark Mustard 52 (C), Forest Green 47 (D), navy blue 17 (E), Blue Turquoise 60 (F),
Dark Purple 76 (G), Dark Old Rose 39 (H)

Throughout this pattern, use the yarn held double (you’ll use 2 strands of yarn). The project only requires 1 ball of each colour, so wind off half of each ball before beginning so you have 2 ends to work from.
