Amarillo is the 4th pattern from the ebook Great Plains
- Crocheting my land, the Texas Panhandle.
Amarillo. Yes, where you can get a free 72oz steak, see Cadillac Ranch and, on occasion, hear that great song by George Strait… it is, my home.
I chose this particular piece to give the name ‘Amarillo’ because here, we are a little bit country & a little bit city. With a quickly growing population nearing 275k, it is certainly a city (we even have “traffic”, now). As for a little bit country, on pretty much every outing you are certain to see a cowboy in spurs and it is not uncommon for horses to be “parked” at the Dairy Queen.
The fringed, bandana styling is a nod to our western style while the buttoned, cowl construction is chic and modern.
