Tumbling blocks

Tumbling blocks - Tweed Grey Jacob, Chocolate Black Hebridean and White Shetland DK


This is a patternwhich involves three colours in many of the rows, making it tricky to knit. I did it by stranding all the yarn at the back. You could also do it using a jaquard technique, in which case working a pattern of larger blocks would be easier.
