Sierraville Project Kit


Our project kit includes four natural shades of Green Mountain Spinnery Simply Fine yarn that we think beautifully reflect the late autumn landscape here in Vermont. Your project kit provides sufficient yardage for the cowl and mitts as written in the pattern and shown here.  You can purchase the pattern directly from Elizabeth on Ravelry.


If you haven’t already worked with our softest yarn, you are in for a treat! We combine premium kid mohair with the finest wool to produce a singly ply fingering weight yarn that is as soft and light as a cloud.  Fibers for the undyed skeins of this yarn are GREENSPUN using vegetable based soaps and oils in the processing and then washed gently to preserve the natural sheen and resilience. This yarn will bloom and become fuzzier with use.

60% Fine Western Wool Targhee (a cross between Rambouillet and Columbia sourced from herds along the Front Range of the Rockies)
40% Fine Kid Mohair (fiber sheared from Angora Goats less than two years old sourced from herds in Vermont, North Carolina and Pennsylvania)

Designed for the 2022 Sierra Nevada Yarn Crawl, Elizabeth Doherty’s Sierraville Mitts & Cowl Pattern celebrates the changing seasons in the Sierra Valley, as the hot days of late summer turn into autumn. Slip-stitch patterns recreate the feel of the seasonal dry California underbrush, the east and west winds, and the wings of our elusive nighttime visitor, the Hawk Moth. The slip-stitch motifs may look intricate, but they are actually quite simple to knit. Only one color is used per round, so there’s no need to carry two strands of yarn at once, and the progression of patterns keeps the knitting flying along.

The pattern download (SOLD SEPARATELY on Ravelry) contains both the Mitt and the Cowl patterns, as well as instructions for working a speed swatch to quickly test color combinations.
