On A Lark draws its inspiration from three of our favorite Northwest flora and fauna - Oregon’s colorful Meadowlark, the bright pink Thimbleberries this lovely songbird loves to eat, and our state’s official mushroom – the delicious and elusive Chanterelle. A Half-Pi shaped shawl, On A Lark incorporates a variety of Assigned Pooling stitches, allowing you to play with this new, wildly popular technique. Much like the Meadowlark gathering bits and pieces to construct its unique nest, you’ll choose amongst the stitches, placing them where they’ll work best to create a unique, one-of-a-kind masterpiece.
