Wildfire Blaze Shawl

Wildfire Blaze Shawl

Subtle. Casual. Rhythmic.

Pattern Information

      When I look at the intricacies of the circle of life in the wild, I’m spellbound by how nature covers so many minute details. Naturally-occurring wildfires are no exception. A natural disturbance creates the opportunity for a habitat to be reborn, like a phoenix rising from the ashes. It helps speed the return of nutrients to the earth from dead and decaying plant matter, giving new plants a better chance to survive the difficult conditions in the understory. It gives smaller trees a chance for more sunlight and native species of plants in the understory a chance to re-establish.
     The story of wildfires gives hope that even when our own habitat seems to be crumbling around us, that we may rebuild with the strongest pieces that withstood the flames.
