Have you ever gone to the grocery store in the blazing heat of summer…can’t get cool enough…wearing shorts or a light cotton dress? Even with the kids grown and gone, it seems to take a while to look at everything and decide what to buy… And that’s not too bad in the terrific air conditioning of the local grocery stores… until you come to the freezer section… at which time I wonder why on earth I left my heavy coat at home!
So this will be my next project! So simple…why have I never thought of it before! This is called a “foulard” and is a simple knitted square that is folded and placed into a knitted envelope bag and carried in your purse…just for those occasions when you are in the freezer section of the grocery, cool in the evenings, or need something to cover your hair in a gust of wind. I love it!
Canadian Living is a great online magazine! It has everything from terrific recipes to loads of knitting and crochet patterns. This foulard pattern is here , but be sure to wander through the other wonderful patterns too. There is a knitted T pattern and a simple sweater pattern that I would love to try…but just can’t see stuffing my love handles into anything that would hug quite so closely..grin!
Have a look…
