Happy Glamper


This pattern is a Knit Camp Exclusive designed by Brittney Bailey.

Part Louis the XIV, part Grizzly Adams, the “Happy Glamper” is here to elevate your next camping trip or hike. This quick little knit highlights the graphic charm of the traditional Latvian Braid technique which, when combined with a little classic colorwork, looks as at home in the halls of Versailles as it does on your favorite mountain trail. Using just one skein of the main color, this project offers an excellent opportunity to use that “splurge” skein you’ve been saving in your stash. Work it up in your favorite cashmere or merino for an extra soft knit that will go wherever life takes you.
