This garter stitch design is a graphic statement piece knit with fingering weight yarn. The fabric is knit from the center outward as you work one section at a time. Stitches are picked up from previous sections for an entirely seamless knit.
The pattern is written for four colors or you can make a scrappy multi-color sample using as many colors as you like!

Multi-color Version I used a variety of semi-solid and speckled fingering weight yarns for this multi-color sample. You need small yarn amounts for the first sections in the middle and larger amounts of yarn for the sections toward the edge.
Most of the color A central sections require fewer than 100dys / 91m per section. All triangle sections use fewer than 100yds / 91m per section except the last big triangle sections on each tip of the wrap each require about 125yds / 114m.
If you are making a multi-color version, gather a pile of colors with plenty of yardage to spare, so you have lots of color choosing options.
