This cowl was inspired by the handwoven blankets from Minde. Minde is a small town with a strong tradition in weaving and trading. The blankets were woven at home and then sold by the men, who travelled in the Summer to sell them in the big farmers markets of the south. They feature small and repetitive motifs, which translate perfectly into knitting. Their bold palettes are an endless source of inspiration.
