My very first pattern that made me decide to design knitwear. I received my first Japanese stitch book and fell in love with all the ways knitting could come together to make something beautiful and I wanted to make something that could show that. I remember sitting on my king-sized bed covered with graph paper just trying to make stitches look good together. I frogged, I knit swatches and finally, I made something that I wanted to wear. This process began my career and now I give to you the pattern that started me on my journey.

This pattern is worked flat, with cables and interesting textures.
