Manos Over The Head

The pattern is from Vogue Knitting magazine, winter 2004/2005 and designed by Brandon Mably with gradating intarsia stripes. Have you knitted from a graph? This sweater pattern uses a graph to indicate color changes. It was very challenging to determine the number of stitches to carry the yarn in the back of the work so it's available for knitting on the subsequent row. When it was done, I learned that random yarn changes could never produce a knitted garment where one color or two colors would not dominate the colorways.
