I am updating all my patterns and am making them free to download from Ravelry. However, I am happy to encourage donations for a charity close to my heart - the Macmillan Cancer Support, so please feel free to click here.

So, you have just bought another skein of lovely self patterning fingering or 4-ply yarn, and need a quick and easy pattern to knit it up – nothing fancy, just something that will show off the gorgeous colors combinations and changes … . well here you go! This pattern will do just fine!
