The combination of colors in this bath mat caught my eye, so I cut out the magazine picture and saved it, like I usually do.
Here’s my collection of similar clippings from magazines, newspaper ads and catalogs. Most of them are stripes. Maybe they’ll spark ripple designs someday too!
I chose colors of yarn similar to those in the bath mat and mimicked its white lattice by putting a one row white stripe between all the other stripes. There’s no particular plan for the order of colors, or the width of stripes I’ll make.
Two of the yarns I’m using came from thrift store sweaters, the ball of light green on the left, and the cake of periwinkle chenille on the right.
