Add as you knit
The first thing I did was tea dyed some white cotton yarn giving it a hint of purple. I gathered some elements that I wanted to add to the yarn, now prior to knitting as I was winding my yarn in to a ball I added small strips of a purple variegated yarn, and whats so unique about this yarn is it pulls apart giving almost the look of sea weed
I gathered some flowers and beads.
I started knitting and using a crochet hook I would slip a stitch off adding the flower or the bead. then slip the stitch back on to the knitting needle I would knit the stitch as usual. Once finished I opened the yarn up giving it the free form look. This is a fun way to add all those fun elements to the yarn with out paying a big price for it at the knit shops, and one your finished you have a truly unique piece
