Thanks for looking!

That's wonderful! :heart: Was there a specific pattern that you used or did you just find a stitch that you wanted to learn & make a block using it? Very nice job!

I worked in strips (cause I don't enjoy knitting in the round) and basically use 7 colors of a 12 color, color wheel with each strip, rotating 2 colors clockwise with each new strip. All but one strip was CO in odd numbers, ranging from 17 to 27 stitches.

Size 11 needles

The 1st stitch in every row was slipped, and the last stitch was always knitted.

I attached the strips with mattress stitch and used the slip stich as my guide.

All yarn was from KnitPicks, if I used a color from Wool of the Andes I used 3 strands, Sierra 2 strands.

Most, of the stitches came from the Knitting Stitch Library
http://knittingonthenet.com/stitches.htm

The different stitches were selected at random. Some that I used were as follows. . .
Linen, Parallelograms II, Basketweave, Twin Rib (modified) Slip Stitch Honeycomb, Seed, Moss, etc.

Thanks again for your nice words[/url]

Bee-utiful. I may have to do one like that! :heart:

The best thing is, since it's all different stitches, you probably didn't get as bored as quickly!

You know, if they gave out awards on this board, I would say that this would win for the all-time most creative :star: and the most beautiful project.

Of your learning. Did you keep track, or can you guess haw many differnt stitches you learned or used? I think that's a very creative piece. Love the idea of using so many colors and stitches! really interesting!

I agree it is beautiful! :notworthy: My question is how did you work so many different stitches with different requirements such as multiples of 4 + 2 on the same row?

How did I miss THIS!!! :shock: I'm going to save all my scraps & ends, and knit those when practicing new stitch patterns from BGW's pattern treasuries.
Perhaps, I can end up with something 1/2 as pretty as yours.
