Hyacinth is a large cowl/small capelet, just the right thing to throw on your shoulders as you eagerly anticipate the arrival of warmer spring temperatures. This project knits up very quickly with aran weight yarn on large needles, and has an easy lace pattern resembling the hyacinths that pop up in early spring. Available in one size, with instruction for making adjustments to the hem circumference.
