Inspiration for this pattern: My lovely aunt Brigitte always had the most wonderful patch of feverfew flowers in her front garden. For years, I have tried to recreate it in my own yard with varied success. The image of her flower patch is one that is often on my mind, so I have created a version I can wear as a reminder of her.

As with most colourwork, you can adjust the fit by adjusting the gauge (by going up or down in needle size) and you can go up to sport or DK weight yarn on a larger needle, if desired, for a larger foot size.

In my sample, I used 131 yds of yellow and 263 yds of grey on 2.75mm needles for the colourwork section, to fit a 9.5” foot.
Yellow: Other Worldly Yarns in Golden Yellow
Grey: Chile Knitz Yarns in Gondola

The red and light grey sample used 94 yds of red and 229 yds of grey DK weight yarn on 3.25mm needles for a size 10.5 US

A 100g skein of background and a 50g skein of contrast should suffice for just about any size.
