DISAPPEARING THIRD COLOUR

Look at the design from one side

and you see only two colours.

Turn it through 90 degrees

and a third colour appears

These are what you see from directly in front

To knit this design

Three colours are required : Dark (burgundy), Light (white), Third (yellow).


Section 1

Using Dark, cast on 50 stitches. This counts as the first row of the first ridge.
Ridge 1 - Second row: Knit.

Ridge 3 (Dark) : Knit both rows.

Ridge 4 (Light) : Knit the first row and purl the second.

This design could be repeated over a much larger area. You could also change the size of the squares.










This design is very surprising. One of the colours is completely hidden if you look at the knitting from the side.
