OUR EXCLUSIVE PATTERN
Our Yarn Crawl pattern was designed exclusively for this event. Our pattern will be available for free download during the yarn crawl. Kits will also be available for purchase online starting on Saturday July 31.
Dreams and Hope is a cowl pattern that features two of our favorite yarn companies: Dream in Color and Handspun Hope.
Our pattern is an easy two-row repeat that is easy enough for beginners, but interesting for those with more experience. The cowl is worked as a rectangle and then "seamed" in a loop by simply adding some lovely horn buttons. The pops of Dream in Color Cosette emphasize the chevron design and provide a lovely contrast of texture and color to the handspun merino which has been dyed with items found in Rwanda like onion skins and avocados.
