Comments: Nephele’s version is single colour as intended in the book. This version was created using 5 different pieces of yellow yarn for the spider, so I could avoid stranding as much as possible. I ‘crossed’ some of the stitches using slightly different techniques to ensure smooth colour changes.

    I have looked at this pattern numerous times and thought it would look good in color, but just not done it – yours is fabulous! Thanks for the inspiration.

    Wow! I never thought of doing this pattern in contrasting colors. What a great effect.

    And I’ve used this pattern in several items, too. Including a spaced-dyed silk blouse that also has a twist st. lattice pattern for the web.
