Free Pattern! Lindsay & The Beanstalk Summer Scarf!

Summer Time and the Knittin' is Easy... That's the name of our HCW pattern booklet, with summer scarf designs by Suzanne, Valerie, Pam, Gardiner, Fran, Brenda, Susan, Jordi, Latifa, Kathy and Lindsay. Because, you know, this is Texas and if we only wore our scarves in winter, we'd get what? Two weeks of the year to show off our fine stitches? That's not nearly long enough.

So the gang got together to come up with some light, bright, and whimsical ideas for you to create fashionable accessories that won't cause you to break out in a sweat. There's even a pattern for you crocheters out there, and another one for those who prefer weaving. The booklet is on sale now at HCW. But to get you started, here's a free pattern and some pictures of what you'll find inside.
