It’s a common misconception that nothing grows on the arctic tundra. There is actually quite a lot that thrives in this barren landscape. This pattern celebrates a few of these unique plants including lichen, cloudberries, and moss while the beautiful Tundra gradient colourway of Hilori’s Magical Yarnorium Meri Jane captures the beautiful colours of this landscape. This is a sideways asymmetrical shawl and it uses increases and decreases to create a long triangular shape that is easy to wear.
