I LOVE the look of the Jacob’s Ladder technique, don’t you? It adds great texture, and it makes a really neat “jumping” effect when worked with color changes on each round or row. I love it so much that I made a tutorial with lots of pictures, a practice piece, and even a video! You can find the tutorial here. There are so many things you can do with this technique, and here is a collection of some patterns.
Here are the names and links of each pattern, along with a little something that each designer has to say about them.
