Pattern Description:

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.
