Taking its inspiration from the incredible fields of wildflowers growing in the Texas Hill Country every spring, Bluebonnet is a relaxed longer-length lace tunic, perfect for warm weather, and a great layering piece for cooler seasons. This garment features beautiful lace reminiscent of growing flowers combined with simple two-piece construction for a quick-to-knit project and a flattering, easy-to-wear garment.

Note: this garment can be worn a number of different ways; you can wear it with very little ease as a fitted tee, or as a loose tunic with plenty of positive ease.

This pattern, along with ten more Texas-inspired designs, can be found in issue ten of Nomadic Knits, which is available now for pre-order. On August 18th, the issue will be added to your Ravelry library.

To pre-order a physical copy, complete with stunning photos printed on 150 pages of beautiful matte paper, along with a Ravelry download code, visit your favorite local yarn shop or the Nomadic Knits website.
