Wild Bird has an unusual garter stitch shape with graphic inserts for a dramatic effect. The beauty of this pattern is that you can make it with any weight of yarn, from light fingering to super bulky. It’s also a beautiful way to use your precious scraps, while using different colors for each insert.
