behaglich bəˈhaːklɪç adj = snug, comfortable, cosy, comforting. Behaglich is a snug and cosy wrap knit almost entirely in comforting garter stitch with just a smidge of knitting excitement in the centre. To keep the knitting experience “behaglich”, the centre star is knit in the round, minimising the use of purl stitches, with simple eyelets creating an eye-catching pattern.
