Greenwillow


A new year calls for a new pattern, and with all the snow we've gotten over the past few weeks, nothing fits the bill like a cozy cowl.

Greenwillow features a dimensional lattice texture accentuated by crisp linear edge details. The pattern is written for two lengths, a simple 21.5" loop, and a 43" loop that can be worn as a long infinity scarf or doubled around the neck for extra warmth.

Knit in String Theory's Blue Faced Sport in Jade, the yarn's subtle tonal variations and incredible luster perfectly complement the latticework pattern.

Greenwillow can be found in the Blue Bee Studio Ravelry store.

  3. I love this pattern! The color is perfect too since PANTONE's color of the year is emerald :)

  4. I have to ask -- is that sideways stitching Vikkel (or Estonian) braid? I know the very edge is probably icord bindoff, but that Estonian braid takes hours! Just wondering what I'd be letting myself in for...

    1. Well observed! It is a single Estonian braid. I find it takes me about one and a half times as long as it takes to knit a round in stockinette.
