The Preserve, a triangle shawl named for the Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve in Kansas, is a tribute to an animal that was once hunted almost to extinction. Thanks to ranchers, caretakers at the Preserve outside of Cottonwood Falls, Kansas, and flint stones just below the surface of the ground that made mechanized agriculture impossible, the buffalo here still have a home on the range. Hike the paths at the Preserve, spot some buffalo across the rise, and you’re aware that the Tallgrass Prairie doesn’t take your breath away, rather it gives you a chance to catch it.
The largest portion of this shawl depicts the horns flanking wide-set eyes, followed by a wide expanse of one of the big five nutritional grasses – Sideoats Grama. The applied edging represents the rolling terrain of the Flint Hills.
This is a single pattern from the book Deep Roots – Patterns Inspired by the Tallgrass Prairie.
We have sold out of our stock of lace-weight buffalo wool, the yarns we recommend for this scarf are Jamieson & Smith 2 Ply Lace, Jamieson & Smith Shetland Supreme Cobweb and 2 Ply Lace, and Lost City Silk.
