The easy to work pattern looks like little sail boats and would be just as pretty in a coloured yarn as it does in white.
Suitable for beginners as well as more experienced knitters, the pattern is easy to memorise once set up, so is ideal for a take along project. To work this pattern you will need to be able to knit and purl, decrease and work yarn overs. There is a central decrease in the pattern and this is explained fully in the abbreviations.
