Snorkmaiden is a small troll of the Snork family.
She lives in the Moominvalley and she wears a golden anklet that she is very proud of.
This design sprung from the want to wear something as elegant on my own ankles. It’s not golden as hers but I think it’s still pretty cool!
The intarsia cables are knitted with individual balls of yarn which make them pop out from the background, unlike they would if they were just knitted with one ball of contrasting color or even the same color.
I had a lot of fun playing around with the cables. Perfecting the ends of the cables took some time with much trial and error.
I hope you enjoy this pattern as much as I did!
