Product description

Minimalist yet bold with symmetrically-aligned pops of color inspired by Swiss Design, Lucerne is an enjoyable and instructive guide for beginning adventures in colorwork. All stranded colorwork rounds are worked as 3-and-1 repeats — three stitches of one color, punctuated by one stitch in a contrast color. This consistent ratio aids in keeping even colorwork tension, with all floats being the same length throughout. The intuitive colorwork motif can be worked with as few as two colors or with as many as four. With Peerie’s extensive palette of painterly shades, opportunities for experimentation and colorplay abound!
