I've never seen anything like this. Any pointers on where to learn this technique?

I'll put in my 25 cents here and say that Barbara Walker has a couple of books about this technique. Mosaic Knitting is all about it and there are sections covering it in the Knitting Treasuries and Knitting from the Top Down.

I really like the 014 pattern, where did you find this pattern?

I'll have to translate the pattern stitch as it is in Dutch. It is a variation on the slip stitch/fisherman's rib principle.

The colours are produced by a varigated marino wool version and just happens to work out the way it did.

Thanks for the flowers. It is back to lace now. I'love your work and the stories that come with it. Love the poodle story/experiences. I have always been a dobermann man, but the one without the docked tail and snipped ears. The last one was called Steed, you probably remember the avengers (Steed & Purdey). So my other dog was of course called Purdey. Have a good weekend.
