The birch is one of the deciduous
trees that can survive in harsh northern climates. After
birches have shed their leaves in the fall, they can look
like ghost trees, ethereal and other-worldly.
This over-sized wrap is shaped like a ruana, but can also
be worn as a vest. The changing colours of the piece
combine the colours of birch trees in fall with a background
of earth and stone.
The sample pictured is knit with Noro Silk Garden,
45% silk, 45% kid mohair, 10% lamb’s wool, (100 m./110
yds. per 50 g. ball), Main Colour No. 245 and Contrast Colour
There will be a Knit-Along for this pattern
through Ravelry.com beginning 01 November 2010.
