Knit a shawl to elegantly illustrate the transition between seasons. The fall to winter kit shows green leaves changing to orange and red. As they fall, they are replaced by snowflakes. The dark border represents shorter amounts of daylight at the equinox. The spring to summer kit shows spring rain dissipating and green sprouts emerging. Then brightly colored flowers bloom in the fun scalloped petal patterns along the border.
Fall kit included two 50 gram hanks of Shadow in Nocturne Heather, one 50 gram hank each of Shadow in Forest Heather, Persimmon Heather, Sunset Heather, Vineyard Heather, Midnight Heather, Basalt Heather along with the pattern for the shawl.
Spring/Summer kit included one 50 gram hank each of Shadow Tonal in Blue Yonder, Springtime, Queen Anne, Canopy, Deep Waters and Summer Blooms along with the pattern for the shawl.
