Fallings Leaves and Crochet Scarves
I spend a great deal of time in the mountains and parks around my home. The soft conversations of the birds, the lack of man-made noises, and the awe-inspiring foliage, nature has a way of refreshing and reinvigorating.
Coming from a town where trees were few and very far between, I have always been fascinated by leaves. They signal the start of spring when they peak their pale green heads from the limbs. During the summer their lush green expanse provides shade and protection of people and birds alike. But my favorite time of year is the Fall. The leaves turn varying shades of red, orange, and yellow. Some even take on a deep burgundy that is stunning.
The Latvian word for autumn (rudens) inspired the The Rudens Scarf by Linda Skuja. This symmetrical scarf begins at the center. The leaf inspired designs is worked to the end where the outer leaves' edges form the triangle point. The design is then repeated on the opposite side of the center foundation to create a cascade of leaves for the second end of the scarf. The finished scarf mimics the falling leaves of autumn.
