Arctic Water is the first of the three Arctic Aura haps that I designed in 2015. It is the squishiest and the warmest of all the pieces, and its colours are meant to bring a breath of fresh Arctic Aura to your everyday life.

Use: two-ply hand-spun Estonian wool, parameters: 285 m/ 100 g (310 yd./ 3.53 oz.)

There are two more haps in the Arctic Aura hap family:
Arctic Air and
Arctic Land. I encourage you to try making them, too!

The updated version of instructions has been uploaded on 17 January 2016. If you purchased your copy before that day, please make sure to refresh your Ravelry library- the update is waiting for you there.

I suggest using interchangeable circular needles. As an alternative you may use one pair in each size with at least 100 cm/ 40 inches cord and yet another pair in larger size with 40 cm/ 16 inches cord.

scissors, tapestry needle,16 regular + 8 removable stitch markers (for example my MAKs)

dimensions/ sizing
sample: 145 x 145 cm/ 57 x 57 inches;
it is possible to make other sizes based on this pattern.

Arctic Water is built from inside to the outside. Its centre square is knitted diagonally back and forth in garter stitch, and introduces Cat’s Paw lace motifs. Based on the square is the Old Shale wavy border made in the round and finished with a full version of the traditional peaked edging formed perpendicular to the border. This hap requires blocking.

instructions type
The pattern includes written and charted instructions, photographs, tips and links to video tutorials. There are directions on size adjustments provided as well.
