Item details

I conceived and knit The Ceylon Series while cycling around on the island of Sri Lanka (formerly called Ceylon). They are a mock cable technique using increases and decreases rather than a cable needle. A lacy version for ‘her’ and solid version for ‘him’ can be made by reading the chart legend.

Ability to understand charts, work in the round, and increase and decrease stitches.
