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 :-)
I first designed this pattern in the Americo Originals Organic Cotton for a boutique in Toronto. I was interested to see how the pattern would work in a different yarn, so I adapted it to a cowl. It was just days before Christmas and I was in need of a quick project to knit for my Grandmother. Of course, I had planned on knitting her a cowl for months, but had gotten behind due to exams and finals. I was very pleased that the cowl pattern knit up in a day. Also, there is not too much finishing as the wave edging occurs naturally while you knit. She told me she absolutely loves it and wears it to bed every night. It keeps the cold Canadian chill off her neck. Months later and the organic cotton still retains its luxury pillowy soft feel.
