Description from the Patternfish.com pattern page (http://www.patternfish.com/patterns/4639):
“Named after the Carmanah Valley in British Columbia, Canada, this pattern echoes the winding paths and lush greenery of the old growth forest that inspired it,” says Matthews. “You’ll find the scarf is large enough to wear in a variety of ways, and lush enough to keep you cozy during a long hike through the woods.” She is not prolific (enough), but when she does release a design, it’s immaculately thought out and beautifully, simply written. This is a wise and gorgeous use of a variegate, and you can work from either the large chart or the written directions in large clear type.
This pattern has the lace pattern charted in addition to written directions.
The original required two 100g hanks of Misti Alpaca Hand Paint Sock Yarn.
Tapestry needle for darning loose ends; rust-proof pins, blocking wires and blocking board for blocking to finished size.
Printed copies of the pattern are available for purchase at:
- The Needle Emporium in Ancaster, Ontario

Starting February 6 and continuing until February 24 - a day after closing ceremonies - I will donate 50% of each sale of any of my patterns to http://egale.ca/ , an organization that does good work on behalf of LGBTQ people. I was inspired to do this by my friend Lynne Sosnowski (etcgirl here on Rav), who has written beautifully of her beliefs. I hope Lynne’s thoughts will inspire others to support not only the athletes, but everyone who works hard to be faster, to fly higher, to be stronger, no matter what their endeavor, no matter who they are, no matter who they love.
