The warm sun on your face, crisp air, birds chirping in the distance, big fat bumblebees sticking their noses in the prettiest flowers…all the best signs that summer has arrived. Here’s a beautiful tribute to those summer days many of us love so much.

Wild Flowers + Honey is knit side-to-side to create an easy to wear off-center triangle shape that can be styled many ways to fit your look. Wild Flowers + Honey features a striped garter section that flows into a dainty two-color brioche motif and flirty picot bind off. Imagine the compliments you’ll get wearing the irresistibly romantic silhouette styled as a shawl, scarf, or even a swimsuit cover. You’ll receive a chart and schematic in the pattern to provide helpful visual cues to supplement the written instructions.
