Designing with a colourful and dynamic colourway like this month’s Patina brings with it a particular set of challenges. My aim is always to highlight the tones in the yarn without distracting from the motifs in my design. I needed just the right balance of texture and lace. A crisp, graphic motif, fun to knit with stunning results!
