Winter´s Fern, which began as just a fun swatch project,
went on to become my first published pattern, and it remains my most popular to date. Super quick to knit, perfect for gifts or for your first colorwork project, it’s still one of my favorites as well. Ideal to use up leftovers from other projects or to practice your technique, overall, it s a super fun and rewarding little project.
