This pattern is inspired by my trips to visit my parents in Portugal, where I knit with my mum. I am inspired by the tilework, the colours on the exteriors of the buildings and my camera and sketchbook are always full of different architectural delights and the patterns. I made my first pair of Alfredos handwarmers after being inspired on the very day that I first saw Restaurante Alfredo Recommended Yarn: The yarn is hand dyed by Skein Queen, Squash, fingering/ 4ply (14 wpi) UK merino yarn, dyed in the UK. Machine wash on cool cycle
This pattern is suitable for beginner- intermediate knitters, wanting to start with colourwork.
