Difficulty level

Difficulty level: 2⭐️ out of 5⭐️

Description of difficulty levels

1⭐️ out of 5⭐️

Patterns marked with 1⭐️ are suitable for beginners, there are help videos and no difficult techniques.


2⭐️ out of 5⭐️

Patterns marked with 2⭐️ are suitable for the slightly experienced knitter who still doesn't want difficult techniques but a project with a bit more detail.


3-, 4- and 5⭐️ out of 5⭐️

I don't yet have patterns that complicated or full of difficult techniques if these levels apply. They are simply there so that the knitter can put the degrees of difficulty into perspective.

Washing instructions

Hand wash at around 30 degrees with wool soap. Don't let the work soak in the water. Dry flat on a towel, preferably with heated floors. Baby Merino is a very elastic yarn, but since it is knitted together with a thread of mohair, the yarn maintains its shape.

Note! This is NOT a physical product, but a knitting pattern - purchase at your own risk! Remember to check the lauguage before buying.
