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. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knit bead purl twist cable GAUGE 24 sts and 24 rows over 4"/ 10cm in pattern stitch SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS cowl - 26"/ 66cm long by 6"/ 15cm wide scarf - 60-78"/ 152.5-198cm long by 6"/ 15cm wide SUGGESTED YARN 164 yards of Worsted weight PREFERRED BRAND/YARN Estelle Cloud Cotton
