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 Zen Variations booklet is available from the EastLondonKnit Etsy shop.
