Aquifer was the 3rd M Club pattern for 2017 and plays with a special gradient kit that Jennifer from SpiritTrail Fiberworks designed just for us!

Aquifer is worked flat with a two color mosaic stitch. You start with a provisional cast on and work a simple rectangle. Aquifer is finished with a crochet edging that brings it together perfectly. You can choose to place beads on the Aquifer Stitch or not! Totally up to you!
