High Desert Collection
Evoking a sense of open space and calm, the high desert forms a balance between the sublime mountain range and the arid desert. The space is vast and complex, landscapes are punctuated by geologic curiosities, and wildflowers provide surprising beauty.
Rooted in these qualities, the High Desert collection features six patterns that explore texture and color. Beginning with a sweater worked sideways in an allover lace pattern, Thistle is a cardigan worked in a single ply yarn that balances dainty lace with a rustic flair. With the simplicity and grace of garter stitch and a flash of lace, Larkspur is a versatile lace weight sweater that can be dressed up or dressed down. Tumbleweed gives a nod to those skeletons of the desert that blow and tumble across the land, with cables that roll and ripple in an asymmetrical fashion across the vest. Evening Primrose brings color to the collection as a stranded vest with motifs reminiscent of wildflower tufts. With undulating twin leaf lace, Camas Lily brings to mind the ebb and flow within nature as the seasons come and go and as wildlife migrates. Finally, mimicking an organic growing process, Oleander is a sweater featuring budding cables.
The patterns of the High Desert collection are all sized from 30" to 60" bust and have both written and charted instructions.
