Pure Shetland wool forms a beautiful wheel of color in this design, which is worked in the round and never uses more than two colors per row. The instructions are written out, but the colorwork is provided in chart form.

Note about yarn requirements: If worked at the given gauge, this pattern will use up almost all of the background color, and most of the darkest color. An insurance ball is recommended, particularly if you think you might knit larger than the given gauge.

The pattern includes three versions of the colorwork charts. They are identical except for the colors. Use the chart that most closely resembles your color choices.
