Homestead is the perfect comfort knitting piece: rows of garter stitch for relaxation and few rows of eyelets and braids for a little bit of challenge.
It is another netflix-friendly piece to make, perfect for the evenings on the couch with a cup of cocoa and a good show.
Once around your neck, you’ll have a hard time putting it down!

It is easily adjustable, so if you have more yardage, you can add a stitch(s) repeat(s) to make it (even) bigger!

The pattern is written, and a video is provided to help you execute the laterail braid stitch.

You can see the pattern in video here.
The pattern is also available on Patreon (cheaper patterns, and extras goodies!)
