Happy spring! My cold frames are sprouting lettuces, spinach and kale, we are headed into days of balmier if uncertain temperatures. This is the kind of weather when sweaters go back in the drawer (although not THAT far away). I find myself looking for vests and shawls and scarves to take the chill off, rather than holding warmth in. To that end the WIDE RIB TUNIC shown below is a fabulous garment. Easy to knit on a circular needle, with very little finishing, it can be made tunic length, as shown, or shorter. And the neck can be less of a roll, more of a flat crew, with just a few final rows of moderation.
I wear it with leggings and a turtleneck.
You can purchase the pattern here:
Countrywool's annual SPRING KNITTING RETREAT will take place in mid April and I will be at the cottage on Long Beach to prepare and tidy up, so the shop will be closed, except by appointment from April 8- 20.
(If you want to stop by my husband, Jim, will open if you call the day before)
If you love free patterns and quick knit ideas,
you will find Countrywool's daily post on Facebook very useful.
