York Slouch - PDF knitting pattern
Two versions of this pattern are available - find it for free on my website, where you’ll also find the tutorials, or purchase the premium version as a convenient PDF containing everything you need to know!
Sales of the premium pattern contribute to my new initiative, the Community Pattern Fund - each sale helps knitters with limited budgets have access to new releases of premium patterns, eBooks or workshops.
