Boxy Sweater


A wardrobe staple in a classic, wearable shape. Reverse stocking stitch shows off the yarn beautifully and gives texture to an otherwise minimalist piece. This boxy sweater is worked from the bottom up in pieces with carefully shaped shoulders and seams for stability that result in a flattering fit.

Foundations: The first wobbly scarf you knit and knotted proudly around your neck to keep out the cold. The handmade mittens you wore as a child, a gift from a beloved relative. When we think about the hours spent making those items, we understand that they are an act of love. It’s the time you set aside for your own creativity that day. It’s the way you felt as your beloved pulled on your hat as they left for work that day. Each stitch, a hidden wish. The gift of handmade is at the core of our latest series of design collections. We named it ‘Foundations’ because these are the building blocks for a lifelong hobby in which we can clothe ourselves and our loved ones in beautiful colours and texture.
