Special Patterns

Reflect (knit)
by Lidia Tsymbal
The inspiration for this design was the glass windows of Downtown’s architecture reflecting back and forth in our rivers and puddles. The mix of old ornate buildings and the new modern ones is reflected in the color combination of the yarns and in the juxtaposition of the simple lines of the edging and the main body knitting in variegated yarn.
