Born in the Canadian Prairies, I felt compelled to dedicate one pattern in the book to the place I call home. Elements within this design were chosen to reflect the nature of the Prairies: the equally spaced vertical lines of puff stitches echo the distinct lines that separate farmers’ fields as seen from above. The seamless, circular nature of each round creates a fabric with no beginning and no end, emulating the seemingly infinite nature of the prairies. The horizontal rows of double crochet stitches reflect the subtle lines that run through the sweeping, golden fields that paint the Earth.
The prairies have a beauty that is subtle and understated, much like this design. Infinite Prairies is a structured, yet graceful, fall transitional piece designed for those brisk autumn days that demand a second layer. Serving the needs of both fashion and function, the turtleneck will keep you warm while bringing a polished element to this everyday piece. Slip your Infinite Prairies poncho over any outfit or try wearing a fitted, long-sleeve shirt underneath and pair with leggings and boots for a laid-back, comfortable outfit.
Made with bulky yarn and tall stitches, this quick project can easily be completed within just a few days. The playful columns of puff stitches add a fun detail to this easy project, keeping you interested from start to finish.
