while some might say that the season for thinking about frost has passed, part of the planet at least, is waking to find delicate ice feathers and ferns on its windows. and knitting a fascinating stitch pattern in an irresistibly sublime yarn—that just has to defy seasonal constraints, right?
the lovely, lightweight stick pin shown with the scarf below was created by nicholas and felice. i love that it looks like a creeping puff of cool north wind. many more beautiful items can be found in their etsy shop.
deb kessler dyes some of the most gorgeous yarns available to us and is a long-time collaborator who i enjoy working with time after time. i was thrilled when she told me she was reintroducing her incredible cashmere laceweight yarn and asked for a design to help relaunch it. if you haven’t been to her etsy shop go now and take a turn around—you won’t be sorry.
thank you very much to rachel for proofreading and perfecting the pattern for publication.
carissa in canada (where they still might be getting some frost) did a lovely test knit of this project and i’m incredibly grateful, thank you carissa!
