The pattern was inspired by the yarn which I purchased at the Ring-A-Rosie yarn store in Whitley Bay, a small seaside town in North East England. The Merino Singles yarn blooms in the moss stitch pattern giving it a very soft and cloudy texture while the subtle speckles add an element of interest and surprise without interfering with the pattern.

The pattern contains fully written instructions and charts. It is not necessary to read charts.

Die Anleitung ist auch auf Deutsch erhältlich. Sie enthält komplett ausgeschriebene Instruktionen und Strickschriften. Es ist nicht notwendig Strickschriften lesen zu können.

• If you have a looser gauge, choose a fingering weight or 4-ply yarn with 400 m (437 yds)/100g.
