Saturday Squared, Week 4
Pattern Name: Peacock Feather Square, heavily modified. I followed the pattern through round three (the rusty red), and then winged the rest of it along the same lines, so to speak. The outside purple border is a shell pattern, made to echo the shape of a male peacock with fully spread plumage.
Yarn: My own hand-dyed reclaimed cotton yarns, along with some dark blue green Noro Cash Iroha. When looking through my scrap bag, I saw several yarns that I knew would make a lovely peacock feather, so I just disregarded fiber type and weight, and I love the textured result!
Leftover from: A variety of projects, including woven straps and a knit market bag.
