This pattern was included in the inaugural shipment of the Malabrigo Pack subscription service.

This pattern was inspired by the Japanese concept of “Ikigai,” which represents a person’s reason for being. Roughly translated, Ikigai is “the happiness of always being busy.” We live in such a busy world these days. We’re always rushing from one thing to the next, attached to our devices, rarely taking the time we need and deserve to stop, breathe and notice all of the beauty and wonder that surrounds us each and every day.
