Temari’s Rainbow Parasols

IMG_2029The parasols pattern in this Temari are shown in a Diana Vandervoort book. 4.68” diameter. I’ve looked at and passed by this design many times the past few years.  All of a sudden it took center stage after a new bright red ‘mari’ was sitting on my work table, ready for something. Each one of 12 centers has a different combination. That element alone was exciting, seeing how the same 7 colors changed as each one progressed. The black dots at the centers and at each spoke really made the pattern. The dominant yellow rings also described each one well. The simple repetition of one stitch repeated from center to perimeter with the spoke arms developing along the way really is lovely.
