NOTES

The diagonal stripe of the pattern is carried on the WS and the horizontal stripe is switched at the seam edge.

Colors notes:

MC = one strand of Chocolate Truffle

A = two strands of Chocolate Truffle

B = two strands of Peacock

C = one strand each of Chocolate Truffle and Peacock

There are 2 different types of color changes are employed in this project.

The vertical/diagonal stripe is created using the Intarsia method using 5 working bobbins or cut strands that are carried row to row on the WS of the work. This color combination uses 2 strands of CC and is coded as “B” in the instructions. Cut each 2 strand bobbin 80’’ long until the decrease rows begin – cut new bobbins at 40’’.

The horizontal stripe is worked by picking up color changes at the seam edge in 2 colors. The first is 2 strands of MC. In the pattern instructions this color combination is color “A”. The second horizontal stripe is worked with 1 strand of CC and one strand of MC. In the pattern instructions this color combination is color “C”.

To simplify directions these will read: k1A or k1B or k1C to give color instruction.
