Patience has great texture and unique style. Though the highly textured sections look cabled, there is no cabling required!.
Patience includes links to some pattern specific brief video’s including; how to work the cross stitch rows as well as how to pick up stitches to work the sides. Both techniques are not complicated however they are made much easier by being able to visually see just exactly what to do.
Patience is a very fast knit worked with doubled bulky yarn
