Idlewood is a top down, short sleeve, tunic with a huge cowl that may be worn as a hood. It is knit in one piece from the edge of the cowl down to the bottom hem and optional patch pockets are added. I wanted something to wear to Rhinebeck (Yay!) that I wouldn’t be too warm in during the afternoon sun and that would fit comfortably under a jacket in the evening. And of course, it had to have a hood and pockets!
The sample shown was knit in *Maine Organic ***by **Green Mountain Spinnery, shade Natural Dark.
