Description

Bagamoyo is an old Swahili coastal town about an hour’s drive from Dar es Salaam in Tanzania. These days it’s pretty chill but the architecture harkens back to a time when it was the bustling major port city on the mainland. Most of the work on this pattern was done while stuck in Dar traffic dreaming of a lazy weekend away wandering around Old Bagamoyo.

Techniques used: Increasing, decreasing, knitting in the round, short rows, yarn overs.
