This is the third design I created that was inspired by the rugged landscape of the North West of England. I love the contrast between the craggy mountains next to the smooth surface of the lakes, and that is why I called it Tarn. Meaning a small mountain lake, it perfectly captures the shift between the richly textured yoke to the smooth stockinette. I do hope you love it!

Happy Knitting! x
