A delicious potpourri of colours, textures and patterns, Medley is the perfect antidote to a dull day.
Toss her around your shoulders, tie a cheeky knot in one end and voila, the spring in your step will instantly feel springier.
Knit Medley in a trio of colours that makes your heart sing. They’ll give you maximum enjoyment while she’s on your needles and will be certain to bring a smile to your face when she’s bound off and keeping your neck toasty and warm.
Including both written & charted instructions and full of simple stitches that look much more complicated than they really are, Medley is ideal for knitters wanting to stretch their skills and play with colour and shaping techniques.
You’ll find yourself saying “just one more row”, again and again …. and again!
