Twining Vines Stole
Description:Much of the vegetation in the Burnt Cape Ecological Reserve in Newfoundland is comprised of low growing plants, only a few inches high. The pointed “branches” of the plant shown in this picture reminded me of a stitch pattern I had once seen. After searching through numerous stitch dictionaries I finally found the stitch pattern used for the main body of this shawl. I wanted a border that carried through the eyelets from the main pattern yet had a softer feel. The cable twist in the edging design has an organic feel that leant itself naturally to this application.
