Pattern Release: Fireweed


The seed for Fireweed was planted on the pages of my sketchbook over a year ago. Fed by color and time, it grew into a leggy little thing: its spine long and slanted, a thicket of lace growing off its edges. I imagine it growing out of the rocks on some nearby shore, throwing its weedy fingers ever upwards towards the sun - a pretty but strong little thing.

A surprisingly fast and simple knit, Fireweed is a playful, striped asymmetrical shawl that showcases the long, beautiful color changes of two contrasting colorways of Spincycle Yarns Dyed In The Wool. I hope you enjoy knitting it as much as I enjoyed designing it!

The pattern is available for download for $6.00, or you can check out the details on Ravelry on the Fireweed pattern page.
Thank you to my lovely test knitters, who provided invaluable feedback and guidance, as well as some seriously gorgeous FOs. And thanks to you, for all your kind words and support of my work!

Happy Saturday, and happy knitting!
