While living and working in Scotland, Kristen couldn’t help but be inspired by gansey patterning everywhere. Taking a basic hoodie design and working knit-purl combinations up the front and back, including the hood, creates an easily wearable classic sweater, complete with seed-stitch elbow patches.
