Curious about something else than traditional bottom up or top down knitting? Want to play around a bit with the garment construction?
Vinkel is an easy and fun garment that will keep your interest – diagonal garter stitch and basic shaping takes you from the front edge, across the shoulders and down again, finished off with some easy seaming along the back and sides. A perfect project for self striping, hand spuns – you name it!
