Elven Inspired February Dream Club

Elven Bosk Wrap
Dream in Color's February Dream Club project is a delicate yet stunning lace shawl - and I'm excited to say it was designed by me!  Called the "Elven Bosk Wrap," the cheery green wrap was inspired by the artistry of the fabled art and beauty of the faerie folk. The wrap features a familiar curled V shape that naturally hugs your shoulders. A filigree of lace reminiscent of architectural tracery provides an organic lower border and recalls the magical thicket for which the pattern is named.

Elvish Details
This dynamic limited edition colorway is dyed in Dream in Color's fine-gauge, exquisitely soft, single ply merino superwash, Jilly.  The yarn itself also gives the entire project a subtle blend of colors you'd expect in the fresh shoots and buds of the very earliest spring garden.

The joyful blending of green and gold will also complement the wardrobes of certain cheese-loving football fans, and the jubilant colors will lift the spirits of those in our office, who shall remain nameless, who are still a bit of a funk because a certain team did not play in the Big Game this year. 

Elven Bosk Wrap
The Dream Club kit includes one skein of Dream in Color's Jilly yarn in the February shade and the "Elven Bosk Wrap" pattern. The pattern itself contains both written and charted instructions and is designed for the intermediate knitter. 

You will also need US 6 (4.00 mm) 32″ or longer circular needle or size to obtain gauge (I love the new addi rockets!), a stitch marker and tapestry needle. These notions are not included with the kit.

Happy Knitting . . . . Amy
