Yōko is a female Japanese given name. Depending on the kanji used in writing it, it can have meanings including “Free Child” (暢子), “Sunny Child” (陽子), “Glorious Child” (容子), “Ocean Child” (洋子), “Leaf Child” (葉子), etc. (Wikipedia.org).
The name reflects the free spirit and bohemian feeling of the sweater. Different patchwork style textured rectangles mimic the versatile vibes of the nature.
