Roinn (‘reen/rine/rin’ depending on dialect, meaning to divide or separate in Irish) is a super simple introduction to cutting and reinforcing steeks. Roinn consists mistake rib borders, and a geometric stranded colourwork motif of horizontal lines, worked in the round. The colourwork motif is charted only. The steek is reinforced using the crochet method, and cut. Button bands are worked flat, and steek edges are finished by sewing into place.
The colourwork motif is charted.
Pattern purchase includes a separate photo tutorial to guide you through crochet reinforcement, cutting a steek, and picking up stitches for button bands.
