Swiggle pattern

Here’s a design I came up with recently, after doodling on a piece of paper.

I started by testing it out with some 3 ply..

..then with 4 ply, alternating the two colours. I realised that this was a perfect opportunity to try double-sided, so I used the same yarn to test it out (it’s the same piece as in my last post).

After a few experiments I think I’m ready to start a project. Watch this space..

P. S. Feel free to use this pattern, but if you do, I’d love to see the results.

P.P.S. I used the free colour chart maker from tricksy knitter.com for the chart at the top of the post.
