So I am really kind of nervous to put my first knitting pattern out there.
If you want to support my work, you can find a ready to print PDF Version with a bigger chart version on HERE on Ravelry.
If you use my patterns and post pictures in social medias it would be nice to link or refer to my blog: martinupnorth.com and use #martinupnorth. Feedback is more than welcome.
But now I am not going to waste any more words.
