Ode to Autumn Wrap

$6.00 USD





Ode to Autumn is a rectangular wrap, knit from one end to the other, using two skeins of fingering weight yarn and a skein of mohair lace.
This Autumn wrap is third in the four-shawl collection, Four Seasons, and draws its name and inspiration from one of John Keats’ finest poems, To Autumn. In this poem, Keats personifies the autumn season as a harvester and friend of the sun. In three stanzas, the Keats describes the different aspects of the season – growth, harvest and finally decline/death. The poem is rich in imagery and exhorts us to enjoy the transitory and short-lived beauty of the season before the dreary winter sets in.

About Four Seasons:
Four Seasons is a collection of four shawls/wraps for each season. Each design is inspired by a poem that celebrates that season, while also conveying a deeper meaning and philosophy of life. All the designs are knit in collaboration with Eden Cottage Yarns.
