The center motif, filled with different stitch patterns, represents windows and what you can see through them.

You get to choose what you knit in the center of each “window”. For the simplest option, pick your favorite stitch pattern and use it in each window. Of course, you can use a different pattern for each window as well!

This pattern was previously only available for people who preorder Hitch: Patterns Inspired by the Films of Alfred Hitchcock!
