Designed by Erica Thomas for the 2018 Puget Sound LYS Tour
We couldn’t think of a more perfect summertime cowl! This breezy openwork stitch pattern pairs perfectly with Fern, Shibu’s soft-as-a-cloud 100% organic cotton yarn. The only difficult part of this project is deciding whether to work it long or short and in a soft neutral or kicky pop of color. Why choose, you deserve both!
