The Samosa Motif is named for the Indian pastries that share its shape. With its quick construction using only three rows and four stitches in its open loop corner design, it is a great unique alternative for those who want to move beyond the granny square.
Woolspun, with an exquisite range of neutrals and vivid classic colors, will quickly become your go-to yarn. The 12-ply construction means that garments drape beautifully and afghans and warm weather accessories have a cushiony soft bounce to them. Sold exclusively at Michaels and LionBrand.com
