Happy 4th of July everyone!!!  Hope you have a great time with family and friends and have good weather.  Our forecast is 2-4” of rain with 100% change on the 4th.  We will see.

I thought that since it is summer and it gets too hot to knit that you might want to knit something cool that you can wear as well even on hot days.  I wrote this pattern and would love to share with you.  I used Katia Degrande and the colors are simply gorgeous!  Here it is….Have fun!

This simple to knit cowl with its lacy texture, and if you choose a little bling, will be a great addition to your summer wardrobe.  It is truly a quick knit for you or knit up several for family and friends.

Also, you can customize this scarf making it longer keeping the cast-on stitches even (120, 130, etc.) and you can make it wider by simply repeating Rows 1-24.  You can also add a yarn with bling, String-a-Long is great and doesn’t add any weight to scarf.  Just go for it and relax!  Make one for you or some for gifts.  If you make one, please send a picture for me to see!

Enjoy your summer!
