Red Poppy Cowl to Knit Kit

Eileen Lee vividly remembers the red crepe-paper poppy that her grandmother often wore on the lapel of her coat. It was one of many distributed each year by members of the Veterans of Foreign Wars and American Legion Auxiliary in exchange for contributions to assist disabled and hospitalized veterans and their families. Eileen's grandfather was a veteran of World War I, and her grandmother wore it in honor of his sacrifice and the sacrifices of so many others. Moved by the flower's symbolism, Eileen developed a design for a double-knit cowl, creating a double-thick reversible fabric – red and gold on one side and gold and red on the other. With this exclusive kit, you'll receive the 2014 March/April issue of PieceWork magazine, which features Eileen's story and pattern, and the finest merino wool yarn from Madeline Tosh. We hope you enjoy creating this cowl as much as we enjoyed learning about its significance and deep meaning.
