Zen Variations is a collection of sweaters embracing the idea of knitting as a physical mediation. Each sweater begins in the same way; with a top-down, set-in sleeve construction, and then develops with variations on the theme of Zen. Each pattern has a simple, clean design to showcase the beauty of the yarn.

The printed version of the Zen Variations collection is available from the EastLondonKnit etsy shop.

TAKUMI is the Japanese word for ‘artisan’. The cardigan features a
flattering wrap-style, with a longer length, ¾ sleeves, and is finished
with i-cord trim worked simultaneously with the sweater.

The Acadia version is in colourway Blueberry,
the Kettle Yarn Co. version is in colourway Blightly.
