- I am a self-employed knitter/designer and photographer. I strive to write unique designs inspired by nature, folklore, magic, Fairies and Elves, and I find a lot of inspiration from symbolism and traditions in cultures throughout history. I also love to photograph nature on an intimate level. As a Master Gardener I raise garden starts each spring to sell locally, and I am also a musician in the band Zayante. You can find me on Ravelry as Peargirl and our band Zayante can be found on Soundcloud..

Midnight Poppies begins with a Supple Rib that has a lot of stretch for a comfortable fit and is knit in Malabrigo Worsted Merino for softness. Soft and comfortable with a pop of color to brighten up a cold winter’s day, this hat is also a quick knit and great for last minute gift giving.

The Koru (Māori for loop or coil) is a spiral shape based on the appearance of a new unfurling silver fern frond. It is an integral symbol in Māori art, carving and tattooing, where it symbolizes new life, growth, strength and peace. I chose an Embossed Moss Stitch ribbing, then charted out unfurling fern fronds for the body of the hat. I topped the hat with “fern fronds”, working tendrils using Cat Bordhi’s method, adapted from Annie Modesitt’s technique.
