New Pattern - Lonicera

Lonicera 3 

Lonicera is a versatile wrap/vest. Worked in bamboo or cotton is makes a breezy summer accessory. Worked in wool or alpaca it moves just as easily into fall and winter. In an elegant silk Lonicera would look equally well for an evening out as it would over a pair of jeans for a casual lunch with friends.
