"You require wool of two colors for this, 8 ounces of gray, single Berlin wool, 2 of scarlet, and a bone hook, No. 6."
Included will be which current yarns and needle equivalents to use that are most similar to that which the Victorian ladies used. Also included will be both written instructions and pictorial images on how to make the not-currently-well-know tricot stitch.

Thank you my wonderful customers!
Just an FYI that I'll have go on vacation mode due to upcoming surgery on my eyes. :p No fun but no choice anymore.
Surgery date is February 9th, 2016 and I most likely will start the vacation mode a few days earlier. My Ophthalmologist tells me 4 weeks but if I can I'll open up sooner (I'm kinda like that, wanting to be able to pay the doctor bills means pushing myself as much as I can).
Thank you for understanding and best regards,
