Ascophilia ~ single printed pattern** 

In luscious oceanic tangles it arrives, clinging to rocks and driftwood. With twisted strands and buoyant bulbous pods, it hints at underwater worlds replete with colour, nutrients, and beauty... Named after ascophylum nodosum - the scientific term for seaweed - Ascophilia is a ribbed beanie with a whimsical ribbed motif inspired by aquatic plant-life. Knitted in the round from the bottom up, this pattern makes use of traveling stitches and increase/decrease techniques to create a striking, tactile design. Suitable for solid, semi-solid, and subtly variegated yarns, Ascophilia will keep you engaged from start to finish with its unusual, yet intuitive, stitch motif.
