This pattern is available individually or as part of the From Russia with Wool collection (available at the moment for the special introductory price of only 6 euros - a considerable saving over the individual price of each pattern - please decide before purchasing as refunds cannot be issued for individual patterns against the cost of the collection).

The pattern requires you to knit from a chart; if you’ve never tried it before and want some tips or help, there is a thread on the subject in the stitchnerds group: click here to go to the thread

Mosaic knitting for quick and easy results.

Knit with one colour at a time - slipping the other.

I chose this motif because it seemed to have a Russian feel to it. When my Russian friend saw it she said it reminded her of something she inherited from her Probabushka (Great Grandmother) (photo #2).

Yarn requirements:
The main photo shows a small single loop.
Small single loop: about 110m (125 yds) of each yarn.
Large single loop: about 150m (165 yds) of each.
For double height, double those amounts.

You can have dark motifs on a light background or light motifs on a dark background (see photos 3 + 4), just be sure to have good contrast between the two colours.

The pattern includes 2 charts so you won’t have to reverse the colours as you knit. ☺

Many thanks to the testers for their enthusiasm, knits and photos:
