If it’s summer and you’re in a draft or under a night sky, linen is just the thing for warming up without heating up. Our Slip Stitch Summer Cowl in Field Linen is a true summertime companion, naturally beautiful and cool-to-the-touch.
An easy-to-remember repeat of two rounds, this slip stitch pattern is just knitting one round, then alternating a slip and a purl on the next. Meditative knitting at its best!
And in our Field Linen, this cowl has a crisp stitch definition, a lovely drape, and a pretty, soft sheen. Save luggage space and pack this project for summer travels… Just 3 skeins of Field Linen and a free pattern you can store in your brain!
As casual to knit as it is to drape around yourself, this is what summer knitting is all about!
