eBook : 5 patterns

Several years ago, when I wanted to interpret the look of printed polka dots for a knitted shawl I was working on, I explored the many ways there are to create circular shapes with stitches. In the process, I found several numerous techniques and thought they would translate well into a cohesive theme for a fresh and modern knitwear story.
