Chinook Winds

BY: Esti Juango

Description

Warm winds coming off the mountain into the prairie are known as Chinook winds, bringing with them a distinct, delicous small. Esti Juango was thinking of the wind when she designed this sweater; imagining it moving through the fringe and the spaces of the openwork, bringing it to life. As she notes, "The wind is a messenger, it transports seeds and leaves, and in that way is part of the circle of life."

Worked bottom up, Chinook Winds includes bobbles and texture among arrow-like lace. These triangular interludes speak to a transition between the ancestral and the Wester, expanding and merging to become one.

FDF samples made out of Juicy DK in Nammoo and Love Me Like You Used To

Recommended Needle Size: US 4 - 3.5mm, US 6 - 4mm, and US G/6- 4 mm crochet hook.

FDF chose Juicy DK for its version. If you prefer non-superwash yarn, Pishkun is a great alternative. Bear Paw DK would also elevate this sweater to a whole new level. Whenever substituting yarns, be sure to check your gauge.

Pattern can be found in Issue 46 of Pom Pom Quarterly Magazine.

Pro Tip: To avoid holes at the side of the bobbles, you can pick up one stitch from the side of the bobble and ssk it together with the upper stitch of the bobble on the following round.
