One of the best parts of working in the business that I do, is working with amazingly talented designers. Designers who I respect, admire and love their designs.
Alicia Plummer is one of these designers. We worked together in one of my yarn clubs a few years ago where she created one of my most popular club designs based around the fairy tale, "The Ugly Duckling".
Alicia's new pattern is called Pasture and Woods, and I love it! She used my Frolic yarn again paired with the lovely yarns of Nice and Knit. The dark blue yarn is my "Forever In Blue Jeans" colorway.
Alicia wrote this about the design...
"Green-grey moss clings to granite stonewalls loosely lining the pasture. It is a break in the middle of the trails, an expanse of sky between the forest. The land rolls and dips, the color of faded straw and hay. A well worn footpath weaves through it, leading back into the woods. Planked boardwalks rest at the fringe of the treeline, where shadows are evergreen and secret trails lay hidden."
I love this design! Colorwork is on my list of things to learn how to do better this winter and I think this will be the perfect project! The hat pattern is available now here and the mitt pattern will follow soon.
Perfect small knits for Christmas, don't you think?
Thank you Alicia for your lovely designs!
