Budding Forest Cowl
In the Spring—as the forest began coming back to life, as flowers bloomed, and baby leaves were born—this cowl was imagined. The combination of stitch patterns reminds me of what I saw as I watched the forest bloom. While in Spring the weather is becoming warmer, I thought a cowl would be a great use of this stitch pattern to remind me throughout the chilly Autumn and Winter that come springtime, the forest will bloom again.
