Sometimes you need a relaxing knit. A TV knit, a vacation knit, an I-don’t-feel-like-thinking-too-much knit.

“I’d Rather Be Cruising” is just that; there are 2 rows to remember for the body, and 2 rows to remember for the lace. The pattern is provided in both written and charted form, and is a great pattern for novice knitters. To keep it easy, I give tips on how best to use your stitch markers, how to block it, and row by row stitch counts for the main body to help you keep track of your place. The sparkly Cosmic Blue Label is delicious to knit with (and I firmly believe that sparkles make knitting go faster!).

Directions are given for both a 1, and a 2-skein version. The large needles result in great sized shawls, no matter which version you knit. You’ll cruise right through it!
