Twisted Pattern Line Twisted - Oregon Moss Shawl (crochet) - by Megan Parrish (RCYC 2016)
This crocheted, triangular, neck-down shawl celebrates moss - drizzly Oregon’s omnipresent mainstay. A variety of v-stitch patterns combine to emulate the texture of moss and the soft, serene, yet vibrantly alive atmosphere it lends to wooded places on a grey spring day.
This pattern was originally published as Twisted’s contribution to the 2016 Rose City Yarn Crawl.
This item is a full-color, double-sided printed pattern in a clear plastic sleeve. Prefer an electronic version? This pattern is also available to download directly from Ravelry.
