Circinae

Introducing my latest brioche design, debuting at DFW Fiber Fest this weekend: Circinae!


This top-down, center-out shawl features columns of brioche that fan outward like feathers on a bird’s wing. This pattern is written to make the most of a gradient yarn, regardless of its yardage. Simply keep going until you are about to run out of yarn and make your wing as big as you like!


This project was a collaboration with Heather of Panorama Fiber Arts. Her Shade Shifting Gradients are so subtly smooth you won't even notice they've changed color on you. Plus, she offers custom dyed-to-order gradients in any yardage from 400 to 2000! So you could make a dainty dove wing shawlette or a ginormous dragon wing wrap if that's your thing.


If you'll be partaking in the festivities at DFW Fiber Fest this weekend, stop by the Panorama booth to see this sample in person and shop the yarn! And if you see me, say hi!
