Combining a soothing stitch pattern repeat that is easy to establish and follow and a beautiful pairing of yarn, each stitch glides smoothly through your fingers. After it has been washed and blocked, the finished fabric transforms into the softest luxurious cloud to wrap yourself in.

Seine is worked flat in one piece, from end to end. The Geometric Pattern can be worked from either written directions or chart.
