“Pt Reyes” is meant for fall evening beach walksor any time when it’s nippy enough that you want something on your hands, but it’s not cold enough for really heavy mitts. The lacy diamond pattern, modified from a pattern in a Japanese stitch dictionary, features YOs, SSKs, k2togs and wrapped stitches. It is easier than it may first appear. This is a quick but fun and interesting knit, perfect for a gift; it has what I consider a high ‘glory to work’ ratio.
