Bloom Where You're Planted!

New Pattern just released to Ravelry!

Worked from the bottom-up this stocking cap features a two-color picot-edge brim and a bold lotus blossom motif.


The Lotus flower is said to symbolize rising from a dark place into beauty and rebirth. Embracing this symbolism, I placed the lotus motif against the deep green/blue background-- bringing it firmly to the forefront and allowing it to take center-stage.

Going Home



Inspired by the words of John Muir, "Going Home" was created with a day in the mountains in mind.  Sized to fit Teens-Adults with a head circumference of 18-23" this Fair Isle cap knits up doubly warm and soft in Juniper Moon Farms Moonshine yarn.

“Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out that going to the mountains is going home; that wildness is a necessity; and that mountain parks and reservations are useful not only as fountains of timber and irrigating rivers, but as fountains of life.” ― John Muir, Our National Parks
