String of Tulips celebrates one of my favorite spring flowers. Each winter, I look forward to seeing these brave little bulbs emerge from the soil. They seem to pop up overnight, a cheerful sign that spring is finally on the way.

Knitted in dk-weight yarn, String of Tulips is mainly stockinette stitch, with a garland of tulip lace running along one edge. The lace is easy to memorize and makes this an addictive knit — you can watch your tulips grow and admire each one as you finish it!

String of Tulips is also available as a kit from Craftsy here.

Fully written instructions are provided, along with three optional charts.
