When I initially started working on this design, I had a different idea in mind. I drafted out the pattern and started working on the sample but for some reason, I just wasn’t excited about it. Something didn’t feel right. I got a little frustrated and put it to the side.

The next morning I woke up and put on a ‘Motivational Work Day’ playlist. My mood lifted and music always gets my creativity flowing! I asked my daughter to pick out five colours of leftover yarn, any colours, they didn’t have to match or work together. She picked THE most clashing colours possible but I think that added to the fun!

I got out my hook and let it do the talking. The colour changes and the stitch patterns seemed to choose themselves and within an hour, I had a small sample and a written pattern draft.

All I needed was a bit of inspiration!
