Sometimes I use needlepoint as a color laboratory. I had such a fun time with this design. It's a take on a classic pinwheel pattern. The common element is a triangular composition of stitches.

Lots of texture make for a more interesting effect so you will find laid stitches using a variety of fibers.

Now, taking the triangle, I turned and flipped in a pinwheel fashion.

Move back and look at the three colorways from afar. Because of the value of the colors I chose, you see a different emphasis in each of the pieces. The top colorway pulls out the entire pinwheel, the one in the center clearly shows off the movement, the curves. The bottom one shows off the inside of the pinwheel, the pattern inside the curves. Do you agree?
