Pattern Description:

I love how these colors work together, as if the Natural color stitches are snowflakes falling in an early spring day, landing on the burgeoning color of the garden.

Colorwork is a great way to up those small leftover amounts of yarn, creating a happy tea cozy which will brighten every pot of tea, no matter the season!
