Barmah knits up quickly in a DK weight yarn, for a cosy and satisfying project. Worked from the top down, the repeats are easily adjusted to make the most of your yardage. Choose 3 colours from the same family for an ombre effect, or go wild and create a technicolour dream-version.

Suitable for adventurous beginner knitters.
