A colorful pattern inspired by flower petals and perfect for variegated yarns.

The pattern combines stranding and lace knitting - the lace rows prevent curling and create strong distortions and contrasts of density in the stranding.

The sample was knit on 3mm needles with MC Schoppel-Wolle Zauberball sock yarn Charisma 2082 (not Cranberries as previously specified, sorry!) and CC Lang Jawoll Magic Dégradé Superwash shade 59.
The pattern works well with a rich dark MC and a bright CC.
Dimensions of swatch: 16in/40cm long x 12.5in/32cm, flaring out to 14in/36cm at the ends.
The sample uses less than one third of each ball of yarn; using a full ball of each will give a length of approximately 50in/125cm.

Skills required: back and forth stranding, trapping of CC yarn at beginning of rows, simple lace work.

This is a charted pattern with short written instructions.
