Our 15th Anniversary Patterns

Our 2014 15th Anniversary patterns for the Madrona Lace Scarf designed by Evelyn Clark and the Madrona Tree Hats designed by Mary Scott Huff.

A Madrona Lace Scarf designed by Evelyn Clark

We are grateful to Evelyn for designing this gorgeous Madrona Lace Scarf to celebrate both the 15th anniversary and the tree for which our retreat is named.


MadronaLaceScarf_0315Evelyn says “It is an honor to be able to contribute a little lace to the 15th anniversary celebration of the Madrona Fiber Arts Retreat. Often people advise finding one’s tribe as a step toward living a more satisfying life and those at these retreats have been an important part of my tribe.

Like the Madrona trees native to the Pacific Northwest, this rectangular scarf has leaves and berries.  It is knit from end to end, and the asymmetrical patterning includes a 10 stitch repeat to customize the width. An option is given to add beads between the motifs and at the symmetrically scalloped ends.

The design looks great in a variety of handspun and commercial lace, fingering and Shetland/sport/DK weight yarns.”

Madrona Tree Hats Designed by Mary Scott Huff

Which Madrona Tree will you be?  We are thrilled with the Madrona Tree hats that Mary Scott Huff has designed in honor of the 15th Annual Madrona Winter Retreat.  There are two versions inspired by the lush foliage and berries of our namesake native Pacific Coast tree. You are invited to mix and match your own choice of colors to create a version of Madrona Tree that is yours alone!


Madrona Tree HatsMary says “I am proud to present Madrona Tree in honor of the 15th Madrona Winter Retreat. These two stranded colorwork hats are worked in rounds, from the bottom up: the cap starts with a hem, the helmet with a provisional cast on.  After knitting the top, remove the provisional cast on and work the helmet sides from the live stitches down. Garter stitch bands add textural interest to the cap, while the helmet sports ribbed trim with a tipped edge. Whimsical tassels finish both sides with a flair. Choose your own colors and begin! Which Madrona Tree will you be?”
