This towel and dishcloth set are named after the sky when the weather is about to change. Knit in a three-row, three-stitch variation on Moss Stitch, the variegated cotton yarn pools just like shirred clouds against a cool blue sky.

Both sides of this eyelet-bordered design look just the same, and offer an appealing texture between the fingertips. Thick and absorbent, yet almost lacy in appearance, this set catches the eye as well as soothes the skyward-gazing soul.
