The size is variable and you can make it cover a larger or smaller area by changing the number of rows you work. The ties are practical and light.

It is made of light cotton yarn, which makes it ideal for wearing on the beach, in place of a hat.

The strawberry motif is regularly spaced and can be interpreted as hearts as well.

The name comes from the German name of the Baltic Sea.
