Baywinter is that accessory you reach for when it’s not quite sweater weather but you’re in the mood for knitwear. Or when you need something versatile for a long and varied day. Or just when the office has the AC cranked up a little too high! It’s lacy and long for when you need something light, but you can loop it twice around your neck for a bit of extra warmth as needed.
Knit in the round, Baywinter can easily be tweaked to get just the size you want (and the pattern includes a note for how to do so). The pattern is both written and charted and includes links to help with relevant techniques and stitches.
Choose a special skein of particularly cuddly yarn and settle in for a quick knit that’s the perfect blend of engaging and meditative. Then watch as Baywinter quickly becomes a go-to FO!
