What you need to know

Brighten up your home with your fave leftovers

This vibrant diagonal design in 13 colours is a fantastic opportunity to use up all those oddments sitting in your stash. The pattern suits any yarn weight, as long as it is all the same, just be sure to switch up your needles to the appropriate size. The border is a neat rolled edging that not only looks like an i-cord but encloses the many yarns ends too, so making up your project is a breeze. What’s more, if you remember to slip the first stitch of every row, you won’t have to worry about a wavy edge. Pom-poms are optional!
