Pattern Romance.
Is it possible to realize your biggest dream? Or will it just remain a dream? Forever? Or just for now?
This design is all about giving yourself permission to dream and to dream big. The two side panels show the hustle and bustle, the ups and downs of everyday life. The small circles with eyelets embody the everyday little things - the small pleasures of a quiet moment with knitting in your lap, a cup of coffee, a smile, or a hug. The cables in the middle represent how everything is woven together to create a safe space where you can take good care of your dreams. A million dreams are all it’s going to take.
