WaterFire is an award-winning sculpture from a former RISD student, spanning three rivers in Providence. Fires are lit in pits installed along the length of the rivers, combining water and fire. The event is a huge part of the Providence culture and it’s free!

The colors of the rainbow Zauberball reminded me of water and fire, and I wanted to do something in wool to represent the blending of the two elements. The charts are inspired by motifs in Alice Starmore’s Fair Isle Knitting.

This pattern uses one skein of Zauberball, which was separated into two different balls: one in blues & greens, and one in red, orange, & yellow.

To knit this pattern, you should be able to read a chart, knit in the round, and be familiar with increases and stranded knitting.
