This design was a labor of love: ten years ago we were blessed to move to a small village an hour south of Vienna, Austria. My husband was earning a Masters degree and we lived in the shadow of an ancient Carthusian monastery, homeschooling our (then) four children. We were only able to stay two years but Austria got into our heart, and remains there to this day. We took home a lifetime of memories and our youngest son, born during our sojourn in Niederoesterich. Now, almost eight years later ? I have finally published a design worthy of our memories.
This design requires the ability to read charts (each of the diamonds is slightly different) and the ability to work in the round. If you've never knit from a chart, start with the cap to practice the twist-stitch cables.
