Thermal Lift worn long

Thermal Lift

Lindsay Lewchuk 2016 New Releases, Cowls, Men, Patterns

Soar on the wings of an eagle! As I watched the eagles soar in the vast expanse between the two mountain peaks outside my window, I reflected on Isaiah 40. Using cables and color work, Thermal Lift cowl mirrors the subtle “V” of an extended eagle’s wings while it ascends thermal lifts. The solid background accents the elegant grace of an eagle in flight. Isaiah 40:31 Yet those who wait for the Lord will gain new strength; they will mount up with wings like eagles, they will run and not get tired, they will walk and not become weary.

Eastern Continental Divide Long Cowl

Eastern Continental Divide

Lindsay Lewchuk 2016 New Releases, Cowls, Men, Patterns

Twisting along the Appalachian Trail and passing not far from my home, the invisible line known as the Eastern Continental Divide diverts waters on the East to the Atlantic Ocean and on the West to the Gulf of Mexico. Eastern Continental Divide cowl mimics the incredible path a single drop of water travels upon falling either on the right or the left of the apex. Everything about this design is local – cotton grown and kettle dyed with eco dyes in Virginia, yarn purchased at my LYS in Black Mountain, NC, inspired by the Eastern Continental Divide and knit in my home close by it. To complete the local lovin’, the photo shoot took place just off the Blue Ridge …

Black Willow Cowl & Scarf

Black Willow Cowl & Scarf

Lindsay Lewchuk Cowls, Men, Patterns, Scarves

Recuperating after a treatment, I looked out the window and became enthralled with a majestic old black willow tree. The textures in the bark and the magnitude of the trunk drew me in. Determined to capture and recreate what I saw in yarn, I created 6 mini design elements, which I then mixed and mingled on the knitting needles until the texture evoked that same majesty as the magnificent specimen God placed in front of me. As a final nod to the sparkling sunset haloing the massive tree, beads were added to the edges and cables. 2014 Pattern Update: Black Willow is back!! The completely revamped tech edited pattern includes modeled pictures fully written row by row directions and full …
