Willow Lake

Happy Memorial Day, America! Whether you are in the U.S. or not, if you’re in the Northern hemisphere I hope you are taking advantage of our rapidly warming weather. I know I’ve been quiet on the blog front lately, but I’ve returned with a peace offering. I have a new pattern for you to wear in this beautiful warm weather!

I am thrilled to finally introduce you to Willow Lake. This top is a bit of a departure from my usual in that it has some positive ease, but it seemed appropriate for a summery silk-blend like this. The flattering cowl neck and waist shaping really make this tank a knockout, even with some extra space.

Overall Willow Lake is pretty simple, as the best things in summer often are. The neckline and i-cord edging are the only departures from stockinette, which I think really enhances the sheen from the yarn. The combination of shiny and simple makes it ideal for those outdoor events where you want a little extra glam, like concerts, backyard weddings, or even the romantic picnic featured in the pattern photos.

If you’re doing any shopping this Memorial Day (and yes, this new pattern is included in my one-day sale), I hope you’ll consider Willow Lake. I know you’ll love it as much as I do!

    • Thank you! My husband commented while I was creating Willow Lake on how much of my knitting is this color – I think I’ll try to branch out for my next design!
