The Calico Mountains west of the Black Rock Desert Playa are colorful peaks rising above a sea of gray and green sagebrush. The rugged mountains shine in the desert with amber, orange, and yellow rocks. The array of minerals that make up the mountains contribute to the color of the Calico Mountains.
But I love how they turned out. Worn either separate or together, each scarf only takes 100 grams of wool so they are quick to knit up. When I publish the pattern, I hope others can be transported to Black Rock Desert whenever they knit them up as well. This piece was created as an Artist-in-Residence at Black Rock Desert National Conservation Area.
