Alaska Rainforest

Last October, I attended a class where we explored fagoting stitches and experimented with many cool things one can do with fagoting. Then in June, while traveling in Alaska, I purchased this lovely hand-dyed yarn from Rabbit Ridge Designs in a coloway called Rainforest.

The fagoting lessons came to mind while I was considering how to best show the lovely Alaska rain forest colors. Simple design, beautiful colors — it all worked (in my opinion).

The specifics:
  • Yarn: Rabbit Ridge Designs DK optim wool, two 50-gram skeins, 154 yards per skein
  • Needles: US 8
  • Finished size: 7.5 inches wide by 92 inches long

What a great idea - the pattern shows of the yarn really nicely, I think.
