This pattern is a quick and simple little project to whip up for the season or to take on vacation. It is knit from the top down, centre out, and features an eyelet border. If you’ve never done the M1L or M1R increase please don’t be daunted, it is very easy and I’ve included a link to easy to understand explanations, illustrated and on video.
