"...to sit in the shade on a fine day, and look upon verdure, is the most perfect refreshment." - Fanny (Mansfield Park by Jane Austen)
Add some lovely wool & needles to Fanny's recommendation & you have the perfect afternoon! The English Garden Wrap was inspired by the carefully tended flower beds and walking paths from Jane Austen's time. Daisy and Garter stitches combine with large needles to create a simple and refreshing wrap knit on the bias in a lovely, flowing fabric.
The wrap is worked corner to corner to create the points & will work best with solid, semi-solid, tonal or speckled yarns. Lavender Lune's gorgeous hand-dyed colorways work perfectly in this pattern & her Singles base creates an absolutely gorgeous fabric when knit at this larger gauge.
All stitch patterns are both written-out and charted.

Garden Path Colorway
Like a lush lawn of grass in the Springtime, Garden Path is a beautiful blending of medium to light green tones that is both vibrant with life and at the same time soft and comforting.
Everything Zen Colorway
The Everything Zen Colorway is a cool and refreshing variegated colorway that features splashes of bright blue, lavender & light cranberry on a white base. Because it's such a subtle variegation between the colors, this colorway works perfectly with both simple and more complex stitch patterns, never overwhelming the patterning & always looking lovely.
Lizzie Bennet's Wit
A black tea blend created for a gentleman's favorite daughter. Her strong character and decided opinions are met with equal fervor for her tenderness of heart and affection for her sister and eventually, Mr. Darcy. In this cup we found a black tea with some strength of character was needed along with cranberries to represent her quick wit and sharp mind. The sweetness felt for her sister and close friends is found floating through the blend, putting one in mind of black forest tortes especially if adding a splash of milk. Mr. Collins would be enraptured, no doubt. However, you will have to decide for yourself if you are willing to part with a cup for any less worthy than your choosing.
China black tea, estate Kenilworth black tea, dried cranberries, blue mallow flowers and natural flavoring.
