Story

The small town of Canyonville, Oregon is situated  beside US Interstate 5 about midway between Grant’s Pass and Roseburg. On the road map, this section of freeway has a dotted line alongside it, which indictes a route of scenic beauty. Grandeur is the word I would use, as the area is deeply forested – massive trees with enormous trunks. They dwarf the town which I visited many years ago, and  yet I still recall the feeling of awe when I took a walk to look and touch these giants at close quarters. It was the deeply textured bark that really impressed me and set patterns flowing in my mind. The effect was so immediate that I took pencil and paper and charted out ideas there and then. One of these is here in this cosy and roomy pullover which I named after the town.

The shape is a classic dropped shoulder and looks good on both men and women. The pattern speaks for itself. It is composed mainly of twisted travelling stitches and it does require concentration to knit. The results however, are well worthwhile.
