Let me take you on a trip around the world. All you need is a comfortable armchair to sit in, some time, knitting needles and a skein of wonderful Colour Adventures yarn.
Our first trip was to Poland but this time I’m taking you to Ireland. A country of beautiful emerald hills and high sea cliffs, a country of fantastic cables and green Leprechaun. So take your needles in your hands and get ready to set off on a wonderful one-skein journey!

Eachtraíocht is an Irish word for adventure.

The pattern is available as single download and also as a part of “One-Skein Adventures” e-book - a collection of accessories for winter/spring.
