Crimson & Clover

As I was working on this pattern, I couldn’t get Joan Jett’s version of “Crimson and Clover” out of my head, and I thought, wouldn’t it be great to have a pattern offered in both stockinette and garter, so even though it’s basically the same pattern, versions are markedly different in appearance? Knit in Blue Moon’s decadent Worthy (or any luxury fiber) on bigger needles, it’s a lot of bang for your knitterly buck, and the perfect shape to wrap around yourself whilst humming along to Joan Jett and her Blackhearts.
