Winter Fruit ~ single printed pattern**
As a child I took piano lessons from a teacher who kept a potted lemon tree in her home. The tree bore fruit in winter, and all through the cold months the surfaces of her living room were covered in crystal bowls full of lemons. As snow swirled outside and light streamed through the frosted windows, the citrus fruits glistened like baubles in the darkened living room - an improbable and delightful spectacle to accompany the sounds of the piano...
Intriguingly textured and cuddliciously warm, Winter Fruit is an anatomically shaped, reversible cowl. It is worked much like a top-down sweater yoke - only without the sweater! - making for a satisfyingly quick single-skein project.
