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! Maine Organic from Green Mountain Spinnery is listed as worsted weight, but I knit this at 3.75 sts per inch and just love the fabric. Wonderfully Wooly from GMS is the perfect substitute if you would like a more colorful option. Both these yarns are spun the same and will look and drape the same at the same gauge, and are very rustic wooly yarns, which I LOVE. If you are looking for a soft wool option, Osprey from Quince and Co is perfect and amazing and super soft.
