A Game of Chance knitting pattern
We now operate a pay what you feel program for all our patterns feel free to enter what you feel the pattern is worth. Please note that the price listed is the minimum.
This game of chance and luck is a funny thing, it relies a lot less on skill, but is heavy on strategy and leveraging where your luck happens to fall. Inspired by those sometimes pleasant and sometimes mercenary games of Monopoly with the family, this semi circular shawl uses different skeins in each section to represent different colour groups and textured motifs to show some of the most recognisable parts of the game. The way that the pattern is written allows you to substitute the waterworks chart for the stations chart. Or you can pick your favourite game piece and add it to the empty chart provided (upside down).
