YARN 12 - Effie Cardigan

By Cara Medus

YARN 12 - Effie Cardigan

Enchanting wildflower crochet motifs dance across a rich teal background, like opulent wallpaper destined not for decoration but to be worn. Effie Gray was often depicted with flowers in artworks, and painted wildflowers from life herself, taught by Millais on a trip to the Highlands.
