Simple ribbing is like spending time with a good friend – relaxing, safe, peaceful…but sometimes you need a change of pace to avoid the mundane. Just as an excursion to Malbork Castle provided a delightful interruption to an otherwise ordinary airport run, the textured ribbing in Bricks, inspired by the castle walls, provides an interesting variation to the normal knit 1, purl 1 theme. Relax with this project in front of the TV or use it sooth your soul, then enjoy the charming and gratifying outcome.
