Berries, Leaves and Vines
Although I’ve lived in tropical Thailand for more than 20 years, I grew up in the northeastern U.S. and still miss the beauty of the colors in the fall. This pattern attempts to capture some of those colors—in stranded colorwork patterns of berries, leaves, and vines—as they appear at that time of the year. The cowl is knit in the round from the bottom up, and as only two colors are used in any round, it makes for a relatively simple, yet interesting project.
