Megan Charlton is a passionate knitter currently living in Saskatchewan, Canada. Megan is a new mother and also works full time, which leaves her very little time for much else. The only time Megan can spare for knitting is late at night when her family is asleep. She has designed a few patterns and hopes to be able to grow and progress as a designer in the future.
Inspiration: I came across this stitch pattern while on a quest. I wanted a pattern that used different colors without having stripes, was simple enough to work while watching a movie marathon, and even looked good on the back, and this stitch pattern ticks every box. Since you are changing colors every row, you can carry your colors and have almost no ends to weave in, which I love!
Tip: Bring the same creativity to your planning that you do your knitting. When every to-do list or weekly spread is a work of art, it makes setting and accomplishing your goals more fun.
