Green Pastures


Often, when I have significant changes in my life, I try to find the positive in it and the best way forward. With my grandmother’s dementia worsening and being unable to provide her with what she needs as live-in care, it was time to begin the next chapter in life regardless of how heartbreaking the situation was.

Green Pastures is a triangular-shaped shawl that represents how I was feeling during that transition, with waves of the inner struggle I was facing — using knitting as an outlet to reflect on those emotions, finding myself again, and beginning the journey of healing.

Worked flat, Green Pastures contains written directions, charts, and is broken down into comprehensive sections. The pattern includes detailed instructions for the techniques used and a handy-dandy progress tracker to help you keep track of your row and stitch counts.

Green Pastures is available in English
