Pattern Details

Twisting along the Appalachian Trail and passing not far from my home, the invisible line known as the Eastern Continental Divide diverts waters on the East to the Atlantic Ocean and on the West to the Gulf of Mexico. Eastern Continental Divide cowl mimics the incredible path a single drop of water travels upon falling either on the right or the left of the apex. Everything about this design is local - cotton grown and kettle dyed with eco dyes in Virginia, yarn purchased at my LYS in Black Mountain, NC, inspired by the Eastern Continental Divide and knit in my home close by it. To complete the local lovin', the photo shoot took place just off the Blue Ridge Parkway between my home and the LYS, where an Eastern Continental Divide sign happened to be plotted right at a hiking trail head! The tech edited and test knit pattern includes written and charted directions.

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 :-)
