Ringstind; a study…

My favorite wool is Corriedale. There´s not a lot of it around, and once I found some I had to knit a favorite sweater. So I drew up a stranded pattern to go with raglan decreases (…in this case; increases – being knitted top-down). And Store Ringstind was born!

I love this sweater, and have long wanted to develop the stranded pattern.
I´ve started playing with different types of wool, and different techniques, to see how the Ringstind pattern can be used in a design…
