Moonvine

A night-blooming morning glory? A bit of a contradiction, but there you go. But oh! can’t you just imagine the pure white blooms reflecting the light of a full moon? When planted on a trellis with any day-blooming variety, you’ll have showy blossoms from night through morning’s light. Lovely.

Cowl is knit in the round, starting and ending with just a touch of garter stitch to help prevent curling. Once past the edging, every row is a pattern row—if you want to rest, you’ll need to take this into the garden when the morning light is full on your blossoming vines.

Coordinates with Sunspots fingerless mitts. Also available with Sunspots in Morning Glory.
