I had made a pact to use up all my waste from production haste; hand dyed silks from previous collections all in natural dyes of madder, rose, pomegrante, indigo, chamomile, cochineal. So I've wound them in 50g balls and labelled each with the date dyed, and written a step by step pattern on how to knit this WallFlower. It's actually really simple; as it's a mix of a leaf, small petal, large petal, a bud, and a pom pom. You can make a few and create a broach, or a few more and make a scarf, or many like above and hang on the wall. The patterns and silk yarns are available at AprilMay in North Fitzroy, Melbourne, and are also available via email request.
