Lake Tahoe


This beanie pattern is part of Nancy Bates’ California Road Trip Collection. It appears in the book Knitting California.

Lake Tahoe is the largest lake in the Sierra Nevada range, most recognizable due to its location – right at the “bend” in the state with the California/Nevada border running nearly down the center.  It’s known for amazing summertime activities and incredible skiing, but my favorite part of the lake is picturesque Emerald Bay State Park, a beautiful horseshoe shaped bay with a tiny island in the middle of it.

This beanie was inspired by the view from inside Emerald Bay looking out to the tree-lined shores across the bay and across the lake to the other side with the blue sky of a summer day above.  For a wintery look, try adding snow to the ground and the treetops.
