From Handknit Holidays:
When all other trees have gone dormant for the season, evergreens hold a silent vigil. It’s no wonder, then, that evergreens - pine trees, spruce trees, and holly - have become sacred symbols of the winter holidays, honored and even worshiped in many cultures for centuries. This timeless shawl, inspired by a visit to the eclectic, artsy, and tree-filled town of New Harmony, Indiana, is worthy of honor too. With pinecone and leaf motifs worked into its lace pattern, it’s a beautiful, slightly earthy, but totally contemporary accessory that can be wrapped around the shoulders like a traditional shawl or tossed around the neck over a vintage coat like a casual scarf.
