This meditative pattern is inspired by the green fields stretched out beneath the graceful Gothic arches of the St. John’s bridge in Cathedral Park. The simple motions of the crocheted linen stitch is the perfect quiet tempo of an afternoon of relaxing in the grass, and Woolfolk’s smooth Tov DK in misty greens perfectly captures the park’s calming aura. Fill up a mug of tea on a foggy morning and fall into the stitched rhythm of the Quiet Contemplation Kerchief.
