Knitting Waves in Technicolor


 For those of you who are following my Technicolor series, here is the second of four Knitting In Technicolor patterns.  Seventeen colors in machine wash worsted weight yarn.


A four row repeat (only one purl row....yay!) makes it an easy project.  You can get up to 4 blankets out of these seventeen skeins.  Circular needles are used to handle the weight of the blanket, but you will be knitting back and forth as you would on straight needles.


If you have my Technicolor Crocheted Blanket patterns, this is a knitted version of the Technicolor Crocheted Waves Blanket.  I have had so much fun translating one to the other.  


I love the colorful waves in this knitted version.  It would be just as beautiful in more muted tones or different shades of the same color.

I am working on a knitted "granny" pattern and should have it ready in the next couple weeks.




you can also find all four of the 




Have a great week,
Sheila

Yarn tip:
When casting on a large number of stitches, place a stitch marker after every 20 to make your counting easier.  Remove them when you knit your first row.
