PATTERN DESCRIPTION
SIZING

Thus named because the color pattern is like wrought iron work, this little idea came to me while learning two-handed Fair Isle knitting. I wanted a project that would give me practice, but not involve steeks and rapid color changes. Keeping the color work away from shaping areas allows singular focus, and the use of hand-dyed yarns gives the subtle look of color changes without the hard work. I hope you enjoy the project!
