Patons Icelandic Bulky. 100% wool singles
Needle size used: 11
Pattern: Tanbark. From Charted Knitting Designs–A Third Treasury of Knitting Patterns by Barbara Walker
Treatment: Hand wash w/mild soap in warm water; rinse. Squeeze out excess moisture in towel. Air dry.
Swatch size: 21 sts x 34 rows + 2 edge sts. Measures 8" x 6".

This swatch is a slip st., so it compresses vertically. Plan to knit more rows for length. On large needles, it is really nice for heavy sweaters and jackets. On small needles using fine yarn, the texture is cute for baby clothes. It is a very easy repeat to learn, and fast to work.

This yarn isn't around anymore, so use Reynolds "Lopi" instead.
