I design at the intersection of style and organic with Puddles, my Great Dane, by my side in the mountains of North Carolina surrounded by God's majestic and inspiring creation. My eye for knitwear meets caring about health, people, and the environment with the goal of connecting with others through high quality knitting patterns that feature eco yarns!
I hope you derive as much enjoyment in working up my patterns as I have had in creating them! Today is a great day to knit :-)
This is a pattern I designed based on the black willow tree. I was inspired by a beautiful black willow tree while undergoing treatment this Fall. My eye was drawn to the richness of the bark and the variegation of depth. I added glass beads for an accent and a porcelain leaf button to carry the theme.
It is knit in Estelle's organic 100% cotton yarn. The tech edited pattern includes written and charted directions for both the cowl and full length scarf. The beading is optional.
Even though in testing the pattern only 1 ball was required (cowl), when I knit it again, I came up short. 1 ball should be sufficient, but since it uses the entire ball and there is some variation in skein length, the pattern now calls for 2.
