Knit Collage Wildflower
Wildflower is hand made from strips of super soft, cotton voile fabric. The fabrics are all printed in traditional Indian paisley and flower designs, a happy mix of old world India prints paired with modern colors. The Indian craftswomen with whom Knit Collage works cuts the fabric into strips and knots the strips together to make each skein. Wildflower yarn is perfect for warm weather projects or knitters with wool allergies. Plus the fabric is lightweight, so even though it calls for a larger needle size, the end result is still light and airy...and quick to knit!
Crocheters can get in on the Wildflower fun with the Bouquet Bucket hat, a perfect summer accent piece worked in full skeins, Wildflower Mini Skeins, or a combination of both--get the pattern here!
Wildflower is also the featured yarn in the Floret Cardi from Annie Lupton, aka Boho Chic Fiber Co--the airy fabric creates a perfect summer cardi, and the macramé fringe is totally boho chic on-point!
