The pattern from last year’s June Single Skein Club is now available to the public! Designed by the lovely and talented Sarah Pope.
Early summer is heaven for gardeners. Seeds you planted just a few weeks ago are leafy giants luxuriating in the sun. Flowers are blooming in profusion. The first bounty of the garden is almost ready for your supper table.
With all this going on just outside, we needed a pattern that embodied flora and sunshine and homegrown goodness. So, we give you the Seedling Sampler Scarf – an intermediate-level lace project in the Victorian sampler style adapted from stitch motifs recorded by Barbara Walker.
The stitch pattern on the ends looks like leaves bursting from the soil, and the beads remind us of seeds, buds and fruit. Perfection! We encourage you to knit it out under the summer sun with your toes in the grass. It is $6 and you can purchase it in our shop or online.
