Prairie Bliss Book 1 brings together 7 new patterns and includes 4 existing favorites from our popular Prairie Bliss Collection.
We asked each of our designers to use our local, wild-flowered landscape as inspiration for a knitted or crocheted design and were delighted with what came back: prairie-infused designs with a modern sensibility, each one more fun to make than the last. We think these designs capture Austin's style perfectly: relaxed, classic, sun-kissed, and just a bit edgy.
