This sweater is designed with simplicity in mind: a a simple neckline, easy top-down construction, and relaxed fit. The design is named for the city of Adana, Turkey and features a tulip motif inspired by traditional Ottoman art. This sweater also comes with a variety of modification suggestions to make it your own! By inverting the colors in the yoke you can create a different motif where I see the dancing mevlana. What do you see?
