Beautiful! This pattern is on my very long "to do" list ... Love the way it turned out but what a bummer about the bleeding yarn.

It's too bad about the bleeding, but that is really gorgeous! The self striping looks great!

Thank you for the compliment! Don't worry, it's a really easy pattern. At first you don't understand what is turning out of your knitting and then you start to see it I even figured out the "pick one and purl" instruction. I picked the stitches as if to purl, not from back to front, but came with the needle from back, took the yarn like in purling and took it to the back. If you want i'll post a picture.

How beautiful!

I would love to see your picture of the "pick one and purl" I don't know when I will try this, but the visual will be helpful for everyone.

Here are the promised pictures. I knit continental, so my yarn is on my left index finger.

This is the sample piece i knit:



I show the whole process from WS because that's how you "pick up and purl" in the pattern.

That's the regular "pick up and knit". You insert the needle from the front, pick up the yarn from the back and return to the front:



This is the way you insert the needle with "pick up and purl" (in my humble understanding):



Then you take the yarn like in purling:



And return the needle with the yarn to the back:




In this way, when you have the WS facing you, the edges of the squares will still be on the WS. HTH

I have never had the vinegar and water not work. Maybe your friend should soak it in a stronger water/vinegar base and leave it in for a at least 2 hours.

No matter what, it is quite beautiful!
