Knitting came to the New World with European sailors. The oldest knitted article found here was from the 1600s - a fragment of a Basque whaler's knitted cap, found near Red Bay, Labrador.
The Hand Knit Collection by The Purple Raven Boutique features geometric shapes knitted from precious metal. Each piece is simple enough for every day, but is anything but ordinary. This collection pays homage to the hand knitting tradition in the New World.
For me, knitting with wool has always been more of a winter activity. I have fond memories of knitting while listening to the fire crackling away in my wood stove. For years, I made Scandinavian style sweaters with fair isle patterns in the yoke. Snowflakes were a common motif, their geometric shapes being well-suited to fair isle knitting.
Presenting the Flurry Pendant - a six-point snowflake design knitted in 18g antiqued copper on a matching chain fitted with a lobster clasp. Unlike the sweaters that inspired it, this little beauty can be worn year round!
At The Purple Raven Boutique, every piece of jewelry tells a story. Make one part of yours.
