It my pleasure to introduce the latest Squam knit pattern, the Brae Cove Tunic, designed by Sam Lamb.
She and Elizabeth worked so very diligently to make this gorgeous piece to come to life; to create what I describe as “the most warm, versatile, easy-to-wear, sock-for-my-body!”
I hear you ask, “Why, Meg, would I ever want to knit a ‘sock-for-my-body’?”
Here are my TOP 3 reasons why —
1. It’s wearable with just about anything — layered over a shirt and jeans, under a sweater or over a tunic, it’s a throw-on-and-rush-out-of-the-house AND dress-up-with-pumps kind of piece, as well as being incredibly practical (which I’m all about). I wore it with a bunch of other knitwear last week and felt super warm AND fabulous.
2. This pattern includes not one but FOUR different wearable versions, ranging in length and shaping — and that’s not including the option to include color-work before the garter edge. Ridiculously easy to knit up (some might say, the ‘perfect tv-knitting’), it includes techniques that can help boost a beginner knitter’s confidence, such as a provisional cast on, but also includes the intricate color-work to spark a more weathered knitter’s interest.
3. Did you see Becky’s smile in the third photo? Just look at her — she’s beaming!!
