Native Stripes personifies the "make it your own" principal that I tell everyone who uses my patterns. This is such a bold graphic interpretation of the pattern set, yet still has the look and feel of the original Native Stripes necklace.
Bettina Mertz of Austria says, "Here is my way to crochet Native Stripes: I
changed all patterns in black and white and did the bead soup in stripes of two
colors, every block in a different combination." She also notes that she always has to make earrings to go with her necklaces.
