Add a little spontaneity to your knitting. With our Gomitolo 200 you’ll enjoy a wide range of colors that produce a beautiful spectrum and colorful surprises. The invisible cast on starts this top down pattern, which is then worked in slip stitch rib to create yet another level of interest as you work this rewarding project.

Pattern and Row Checker
This pattern includes a list of all abbreviations, glossary of terms, and a crisp schematic with dimensions for proper blocking. It also comes with my unique Row Checker, complimentary. A tool you can use to help keep track of your stitch count, row number, increases, and decreases. Throughout the pattern you’ll find indicators of when to refer to your Row Checker.
