Every 4 years we have this amazing phenomenon called Election. This design is inspired by the conversations had around the knit table this last political season. Typically, this type of talk is avoided but this year seemed to be the exception. In the spirit of symbolism, this piece has been knit on the biased from start to finish. Its as colorful as conversation can get with its injections of accent stripes.
There is no limit to the combinations of color and textures you can use to make this project your own. I can’t wait to see your biased selection for this project.
This pattern is set to be very adjustable.
Pattern calls for Sock/fingering weight. The model in the photo is knit with Barrocco Nebula color way Sagittarius 7503 and three different hand dyed sock yarns I had in my stash from previous projects.
This project is worked in short rows without wrapping the stitches at turn.
