Free Pattern: Heat Wave Necklaces

We’ve experienced slightly odd weather this spring and early summer – cool days are interrupted by humid heat waves, making us all grateful for the invention of air conditioning and in-ground pools. With the heat, though, our desire to knit and wear our knitting hasn’t abated, so on a particularly warm evening, Kate sat down armed with a pile of Canopy Fingering and whipped up these simple i-cord necklaces.

Perfect for traveling, using up colorful scraps from other projects, or as a “swatch” to play with unique color combinations, these necklaces are not only easy, but they’re fun and addictive!

    I really love the pullover that Kate is wearing! Is it one of your patterns as well?

    1. Thanks! Sadly, it isn’t a KW pattern – yet – it is a linen/cotton pullover from Madewell. It has the weight and feel of a lovely handknit, though, so Kate is definitely thinking about riffing off of it using Savannah + Canopy Fingering held together for a marled look.
