I’m fond of spotty, speckly, colorful patterns, so I’ve named this pattern after one of my favorite poems about just those things. Check out “Pied Beauty” by Gerard Manley Hopkins at http://www.poetryfoundation.org/poem/173664 if you’re interested in reading it!

About 6.5 to 7 inches point to point across center in Vanna’s Choice or similar yarn

Besides the usual ones (sc, hdc, dc), this pattern also uses front post and back post versions of those and trc. There is also a round where two strands are held together.
