The forest seems quiet and the only sounds are the shuffling of leaves on the ground as I walk. Water streams gently wind their way down the hillsides. Astonishing rock formations dot the landscape. Here and there, large boulders made their way to the ground. At some other spots, they fell, but got stuck between two walls of rock. In these natural passages, I can touch the two walls of rock without even extending my arms fully.
The Mëllerdall stole is named after the Mullerthal (or Mëllerdall) region of Luxembourg and is inspired by the topography of the area. The stole combines reversible textural stitch patterns, reminiscent of hills and rocks, with a slip stitch pattern mimicking water streams gently curling over the landscape. Join us on this hike and let rocks and streams guide you!
