Oh wow and wow again!
This new design by Jane Thornley makes me want to sing!
Bloom is a (to quote Jane here) "...bright, fun to knit, wrap that combines Inner Circles with free-range knitting to evoke the ebullient glee of spring first blooms."
Plus: "This time I've written the pattern with row-by-row instructions to encourage those whose knees knock at the thought of free-range. I'm hoping you may try this as a gentle easement into a more relaxed knitting style."
Bear in mind you don't need to have the e-book Inner Circles -- all of the directions are here in this pattern; it is completely self-contained. It takes the basic concept that was explored in that e-book and expands it into a most glorious piece.
All you need is a spirit of adventure!
And it helps to have a stash of marvelous yarns and ribbons to draw from...
This web page offers the hard copy of the pattern only -- twelve pages printed out for you on heavy weight paper and slid into a sheet protector. If you prefer a PDF file, Jane offers that on her website.
Fun and joyful -- what better song to celebrate Spring?
