Geometric patterns and play with shapes, stripes and animal prints has been a current trend in fashion, and mixed with the sharp contrast of black and white. . . the look is bold and certainly creates a statement.
I thought I'd take part in all the fun and came up with this runner shown above.
The flat braid wool blend yarn helps to play down the sharpness of the geometric shapes in the design and contrasting color and the added fringe gives an element of texture and fun.
Hope you like it!
