Introducing Jane Thornley's: Leaf Lights Evocative Guide

Its a jungle out there! So why not go green, really green, by celebrating with Jane Thornley's new Leaf Lights Evocative Guide! Three designs make up Jane's new book: A Giant Frond wrap, A Blade scarf and the Leaf Lights Kimono.

Leaf Lights Kimono is an airy, spring-like excursion into the tropical undergrowth. The colors ripple in light and shadow like sunlight filtering through a leafy canopy. Three rectangles form the shape – two front panels and one back. A long front band finishes the front openings as well as forms the collar from which the back is picked up and knit.

Or knit a giant frond wrap in organic feather & fan lace. What is organic lace? It’s any project that uses a lace component (stitch sets usually known for the regimented adherence to patterns and charts but here free-flying and not fixed on perfection) mixed liberally with other stitches, various yarn types and a free-range, no-mistake approach. From just such an attitude, emerged the Giant Frond wrap. All soft, silky and lacy, it’s knit with silk/merino liberally mixed with other yarns in three hues of green.

Or, if looking for a smaller project, try knitting a soft, silken blade for around your neck, Jane's A Blade scarf is a fast knit that will have you ready for spring in no time. Knit any one of these designs for Mom or Grandma on Mother's Day.

All of Jane Thornley's patterns are sold as PDF downloads that are emailed to you after purchase, thus no shipping charges.
