Lilac Season Cowl

The lilacs are finally in bloom, here in Tangletown. And just in time, I created a nice summer accessory in celebration.


Please don’t be afraid to knit with linen–the results are so very worth it.


Here is Tamara. She’s supposed to be working as my model, but just cannot resist looking through the books in our neighborhood Little Free Library.


This may truly be my favorite design yet. Knit with two simple lace patterns in the round. There are both written instructions and charts. Fast and easy, even for beginning lace knitters.
