This design is inspired by my travels in the autumn of 2015. I first visited Santa Fe and fell in love with the Navajo woven fabric designs. The dramatic colors and simple motifs adorned rugs, pillows and clothing.

Then I traveled to San Francisco and had the absolute joy of visiting a yarn store called A Verb for Keeping Warm. The store carries its own line of yarn spun from the fleeces of local California sheep and dyed from plants grown in their garden.

I chose 2 gorgeous colors of the Flock wool and paired them with a shiny silk/wool blend called Rumor. As you can see the results are amazing. This cowl features slipped stitches that slowly shift around the circumference creating a southwestern inspired pattern.
