New Pattern: Singing Beach Cowl

Singing Beach_6

I'm pleased to share a new pattern today: Singing Beach, a pretty garter stitch-and-lace cowl.

With its scalloped edges and garter stitch lace, Singing Beach brings to mind seashells, waves, and shifting sands—memories of sunny days at the beach. It's discounted 25% in my Ravelry store through November 30 with the coupon code SCALLOPS.

The cowl is named after a popular beach in Manchester-by-the-Sea, Massachusetts, where the sand "sings" or "squeaks" when walked upon. Years ago when my sisters and I were young and shared an apartment in Boston, we had some great times taking the train up to Singing Beach on summer weekends.

It's knit in the round with just one skein of fingering weight or sock yarn. It works especially well with semi-solid, hand-dyed yarns like Watercolors II from Periwinkle Sheep (shown here in the Rhinebeck 2016 colorway).

Singing Beach can be styled many different ways. It's a quick knit, making it a great choice for holiday gift knitting. And there are no charts to follow—the stitch patterns are written out.

Singing Beach was tech edited by Jenny Sennott, who always does such a great job of checking all the little details for accuracy.

I hope you love this design as much as I do! Thank you very much for reading.
