Loasa lateritia
These are probably one of the less well-know plants featured in this collection, but they were just too lovely not to include even if they were a bit unfamiliar. Their strikingly angular orange petals drew my attention immediately. I echoed their shape for the pattern on the sock’s cuff. The folded over edges of the petals seemed a perfect excuse to do a sock with a turned down cuff. The result is utterly charming. The delicate green color and strong diagonal lines of the lovely little spiral thing (I think it’s a seed pod, but I’m ashamed to admit I don’t know for sure) inspired the cowl. It’s marvelously simple to knit. It may actually be the easiest project in the whole book, but the end result is terribly impressive.
