Inspired by the tops of the fir trees where I summer in Maine, POINTED FIRS is a textured, triangle neckerchief, shawlette or shawl. Beginning with an addictive chevron pattern, which is mirrored on each side of the center st, and framed in garter st, POINTED FIRS is equally elegant neck warmer, draped scarf or cozy wrap for anyone on your holiday gift list (or keep one for yourself)!
POINTED FIRS is shown in luxe The Uncommon Thread Posh DK, using 1, 2 or 3 skeins. The yarn is fabulous to work with, comes in gorgeous hand-dyed colors and has the perfect combination of fibers with 75% super wash Bluefaced Leicester wool for warmth, 20% silk for the perfect darpe and 10% cashmere for softness.
