Before I stepped onto a moor, I imagined them as dry, unyielding places. It only took one step to realise that the exact opposite is true, with them full of rushing creeks, enormous bogs and mini-waterfalls at every hill, no matter how big or small. This wrap is inspired by
the small rivulets, streams, puddles and rivers that carve themselves across the moorland and designed to use the full length of these beautiful skeins.

2x 100g skeins of Baskerville in Eventide, Exmoor Blueface, British Gotland , Silk, 400m/437yds)

18 sts and 12 rows in ripple pattern measures 10cm using 5mm hook (or size needed to achieve tension).

Skills Needed
Basic crochet stitches, working in rows, working into chain spaces, working into stitches, post stitches, working into the 3rd loop of a half treble (explained in pattern).

Construction
