Cool, flowing linen contrasts with the sheen of merino/silk in this generous warm-weather wrap. The slight bias of Saltmeadow takes full advantage of linen’s drape while textured ridges show off its crispness. To make Saltmeadow, you will need to know how to increase, decrease, and slip stitches. The pattern instructions are written only, and include illustrations for working the stitch used in the texture ridges.
