I checked out Emily Houtz's how to on Aquafleur. Her how to was clear and simple to understand, thank you Emily - I'm loving this pattern and it's relatively easy and doesn't take long to do.
Thanks for coming - come again :)
the one above is my 2nd one, where I have been a little informal with the solid black stripes for the sheen.
This one is my first one and I think I may just like this one a little more - in this one my fill is more deliberate and even.
