My design ideas and advice: This pattern is one of eight pattern that I designed to launch especially at Yarndale 2017 along with the Knoll Mohair Tweed DK which was also just launched that year. The yarn is spun in Donegal so I named all the patterns using Irish words, Cara (KA-ra) is the Irish word for friend, our connection to one another. I feel this explains this stitch technique, each colour is running long the row yet connecting to each other.
