  4. Northern European Style Patterns
    I'm told to have lots of this pattern so I'm about making all sorts ranging from Sncndi styled to more traditional types. Perhaps a bit full this one but with the waters covered with ice currently I'll make them both thick and thin and then have a look at how they swim when the thaw comes. I...
