Caribou Wildflower Cowl

The Caribou-Targhee National Forest spans over 2.63 million acres, much of which is a part of the Greater Yellowstone Eco System in Idaho and Wyoming.  A small part of this forest, the Jedediah Smith Wilderness is less than five miles from my home in Alta, Wyoming.  All summer, the wilderness area rewards our months of snow and cold with a stunning abundance of mountain wildflowers.

This fair isle, fashioned in a tube then grafted together to form a circle, is made for winter.  I really enjoyed working with Blue Sky Fibers Baby Alpaca.  The luxurious warmth and silky softness of this fiber is heaven to knit!  It’s perfect to wear on those cold days when you’re dreaming of summer and mountain wildflowers.

If you’re feeling a little intimidated by grafting the tube using kitchener in the round, here’s a great video to get you through it and weave in the ends as well!
