Muratura is cleverly knit sideways, with a garter stitch base and a deeply textured stitch pattern which is reminiscent of old textured walls.
The pattern is provided in 3 sizes, and thanks to it's construction it's easily adjusted for different sizes or gauges.
Instructions are provided in both written and charted format, and illustrated tutorials for the construction methods are also included.
