Kaleidy by Deanne Ramsay


This pattern is available for $6.00 USD buy it now

Kaleidy reminds me of the crystal-shaped shafts of colour I remember seeing when looking through a kaleidoscope as a child. I have to admit I get the same child-like enjoyment watching the colours of variegated yarns play in the same unpredictable, beautiful way.
Designed to showcase variegated yarns with colour repeats of 12-25cm/5-10 inches or more the Kaleidy skirt is quite literally an explosion of colour in a garment! Self-striping, gradient and solid yarns can also be used with great results.
Written for sizes 9 months to 14 years and for both DK/8ply and worsted weight/10ply yarns. All you need to do now is pick a colour!

This is a project created using basic stitches, simple colour changes and minimal shaping and finishing. It incorporates a repetitive pattern using basic crochet stitches but may require some skill to master. Not recommended for absolute beginners.
Pattern includes a photo tutorial for making the invisible seam.
