Earth Maiden

Shown in Kauni Effekt, colour "Spectrum"

Wrapped in the colours of the earth, Earth Maiden walks the woods.

Her wrap is a long, rectangular stole, laced along one side. Knit from the long edge, the pattern grows organically, highlighting the random coloration of the handpainted yarn.

Earth Maiden can wear her creation in a myriad of ways:

as a shawl, as a poncho or as a wrap, with or without an I-cord closure at the front, at the back, or to the side.   

The pattern contains two versions of this wrap: a full-length version (as pictured) and a shorter version.

Shown in Fiddlesticks Knitting Country Silk (50% silk, 30% wool, 20% nylon), colour “Bright Earth”.
