The designs Dee Hardwicke has created for Field Guide No. 25: Botanica are dazzling examples of her artistic eye and overflowing joy.
Treeline Cowl. This is a great project for entering the colorful world of Dee Hardwicke. It works up quickly, with playful motifs and four colors.
Autumn Garden Stole. So lovely. A simple motif becomes a sophisticated swath of pattern and color. Knit this in the round or flat; instructions for both are included.
Blossom Stripe Shawl. Stripes are the party here, with a band of flowers—or are they butterflies? Dee’s love of simple motifs lets us enjoy the moment of colorwork, with plenty of simple stripes along the way.
Climbing Vine Mitts. A superb small project, for an introduction to Dee’s world of motif and pattern.
Cottage Throw. A showstopper. Each panel has its own color story; together, they become an exuberant, spectacular treasure to love forever.
Flora Arm Warmers. Four colors combine to make a sweet pair of arm warmers. As cheerful as it gets, to give or keep for your own amusement.
