Knitting garter stitch can be so relaxing and meditative.  I couldn't get enough of it over the weekend.  

Scalene.  Zen knitting.

This design is delightfully simple yet entertaining.  It also includes a unique keyhole feature.

Stitches are set aside at the bottom of the stripe.  Stitches are bound off at the top of the stripe.

The stitches that were set aside are then worked to create a flap.

This flap is the same size as the stripe.  The flap stitches are joined into the work at the top of the stripe to replace the bound off stitches. 

This flap creates a keyhole that has vertical access.

The wrong side.

And horizontal access.

The right side.  Very clever.

The yarn is Dirty Water DyeWorks Bertha.

Colorways Chocolate Raspberry and Dahlia.

This blend has a bit of cashmere and is wonderfully soft for next-to-skin wear.

Scalene is a fun way to experiment with different color combinations. With so many options it's tempting to knit more than one.
