Mossflower was inspired by many nature walks through the woods when my children were young. The original design was for children’s sizes, but I decided that I needed one as well! The cable patterns were chosen to represent the moss, trees and vines blossoming there in the spring, to create a nice cozy sweater not only for early spring walks but also perfect for fall and winter.
