The perfect stash buster: it knits up in one day (!), comes in multiple sizes from baby to adult L, and uses anywhere between 1-4 colors.

Driving out of the city into the Hill Country in Central Texas, one gets a sense of wonder watching the rolling fields of grass, cattle, and trees pass you by. It evokes a feeling of contentment and ease as you feel your big city worries drifting away.

As you knit, you will be entranced by the simplicity of the design. The lace is easy to memorize yet stands out from the purl ridges, creating depth and texture. You can make this design simple with one color, or tap into your inner artist with up to four colors! The design is your palette, and your stash is your muse.
