Pay What Works: Aiming to balance fair and sustainable designer compensation & a realistic representation of the work that goes into knitwear design and accessibility, we’re offering a Pay What Works model with this pattern where you can choose a price that is accessible to you.

The full pattern price as shown on the right reflects the work that went into creating this design best. If a different price point is more accessible to you, you can use the following codes to purchase this pattern at a price that works for you (a Pay What Works implementation that, to my knowledge, was first initiated by Frenchie, thanks so much for the inspiration!):

No code: 12€ (100%)

Sustainablist80: 9.60€ (80%)

Sustainablist60: 7.20€ (60%)

Sustainablist50: 6€ (50%)

Please note that depending on your location VAT will be added when you check out.

Like other patterns from our More Than A Basic series, our Seaside pattern is designed to offer you plenty of options and comes with instructions for different gauges.

We included instructions for four sizes and five yarn-weight specific versions for each size, so you can use whatever yarn weight you’re most comfortable with and make exactly the scarf you’d love to wear. In addition, the pattern comes with lots of helpful information, e.g. on gauge.
