This hooded capelet was inspired by Historic Downtown Gresham, a neighborhood that sits to the east of Portland between Burnside and Powell. The brick pattern represents the buildings located along Main St and the twisted stitches, running diagonally from the border to join at the top of the hood, represent Burnside and Powell and how they join to form the highway to Mt. Hood. The Mt is represented by the point at the top of the hood, while the diamond pattern at the back of the hood represents the Historic Downtown Gresham neighborhood where Littlelamb and Ewe is located.
