Knitting, SweetGeorgia

Linth by Meg Roke

“I have always loved designs that look much more difficult than they really are. This design is just like that. Although there is lace-work every row, it flies by on the bulky yarn and is easy to get into
a rhythm of the pattern each round.” – Meg

Modeled by the bright and cheerful Brigid Zurock, who is usually the first person all of our customers talk to, Linth, from our Holidays with SweetGeorgia, Vol. 3 collection, is just as bright and beautiful for your winter knitting. Whether you choose Superwash Soft (my fave) or Superwash Six, this chunky, delectably soft, and quick-to-knit project will erase your last-minute gift worries. Featuring an all-over sumptuous lace that is wonderfully easy, it’s an accessory that is utterly compelling and perfect for giving.

This cowl is knit in the round from the bottom up. The bottom and top edges are worked in garter stitch to reduce undesired curling. The body of the cowl is worked in a wandering Kabuki lace pattern and, of course, the stitch pattern is both written and charted for your preference.
