The lovely garter ridges!

Most of the time I doodle. I doodle digital. I doodle analog. I doodle on plain paper. But mostly I doodle on graph paper. I love graph paper. Frequently those doodles arrange themselves into completely unknittable things but sometimes I look down and realize that, yes, I could knit this. I could knit it and it would be grand and straightforward and knitterly. Ursa was birthed from idle doodling and one clear moment of “yes! It could work!”

All scrunched up!

The marriage of geometry and stripes, Ursa employs three different colors paired together starting with the center square worked corner to corner then the smaller triangles are picked up and finally the larger triangles are picked up and worked. Easy and manageable elements coming together to form a modularly composed rectangle.

That drape!

How would you compose Ursa?

Can you see the light coming through?
