With an easy to remember repeat, Streling is great for beginners or advanced knitters looking for a relaxing knit.
Streling was designed for Rosy Green Wool's 2021 collection, to which Rosy gave the theme of touch. The names of our patterns express this in different languages. The Dutch word Streling means caress.
