Tierra is a bottom-up, crescent shaped shawl with a distinctive ruffled border and a row of gently bending flower buds on a reverse stockinette ground. Tierra may be worn draped around the shoulders as a long scarf, pinned with a shawl pin, or wrapped around the shoulders and neck on fall and winter days to remind you of things to come.

Tierra, meaning “earth,” evokes the feeling of walking in the winter woods, when the earth holds promise. A large cast on is decreased quickly, flower bud stems are created with a simple two stitch cable and bobbled top, and short rows create the crescent shape. A bobbled border at the top of the shawl echos the flower buds.
