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.
