Booklet #285 Linen Picnic is all about keeping it easy. Breeze through the summer with this simple formula: take rustic, linen blend yarns like Naturlin™ and Linen Jeans® and knit them into simple shapes that are comfortable and full of charm.These yarns beg to be featured al fresco. The Linen Picnic collection takes relaxation seriously. From the knitting to the wearing, these pieces will bring peace to your summer. Paron is a low-intensity intarsia apron. Tambleta table toppers let you choose from counterpane, lace, striping plaid or simple stockinette. If you're feeling indecisive, give our mixed media garments a try. Lil' Eva pairs knitting and crochet while Blouson calls for both Linen Jeans and Naturlin.

Our free pattern Remember is just the thing for those of you still stuck in a
deep winter freeze. We borrowed the smocked bodice detail seen in Moska,
added long sleeves and knit the sweater up in Pure® Merino Heather, a soft and
cozy cool weather choice.
