Wexford is a simple rectangle with geometric eyelet patterning that creates X’s and diamonds over the length of the piece. The graphic motifs are punctuated with bobble clusters at the points where diagonals intersect for an unexpected bit of texture. If you prefer a bobble- less version, simply replace the Bobble symbols in the chart with regular knit stitches. For best results during finishing, we recommend using blocking wires to keep the edges of the pattern crisp and straight.
