I became fascinated with colours when I first came across pictures of Kaffe Fassett's work and have knitted and crocheted throws in the past but when I saw pictures of Persian Dream knitting on Pinterest I just had to try it . I of course came to Loveknitting to search for the pattern and yarn. I decided to change the main colour to my favourite turquoise and picked the other colours to contrast with that, so when it came to knitting, although I followed the charted pattern, I chose how to use the colours myself.
Then, instead of making the very big throw in the pattern, I decided to stop when it was big enough for my needs and ordered more wool so that I could try it with a very dark main colour - some of the new ones can be seen in the second photo. I hadn't done much knitting on circular needles before this so I was learning as I went, and by going to YouTube I also learnt how to graft with the Kitchener stitch. I actually really enjoyed doing that - which was just as well!
