Knitters Projects: Forest Floor

 Around this time last year our friend Alana Dakos released her nature-inspired book, Botanical Knits, a twelve piece collection inspired by the natural beauty of plant life and foliage. Among some of our favorite patterns was the Twin Leaf Loop, which features Tundra in Mink, and the Entangled Vines pullover, featuring Organik. This book features gorgeous design details with a whimsical touch. Another favorite of ours was the Forest Floor hat, that Margaret knit up in the luxurious Road to China Light‘s Moonstone colorway.

 We love how the yarn variation due to the yarn dyeing process plays off the stitch pattern to create this luxurious cap.

 Looks great, Margaret! To find out more about Alana Dakos’ designs, head on over to her website, here. For more information about the Forest Floor hat and other patterns featured in Botanical Knits, head on over to the book’s website, here
