Autumn is here and I am desperately trying to preserve the spirit of summer. And I do not only mean preserving fruit and vegetables, I also collect flowers. Dried with their colours washed out, they will still be reminding me the beauty of their youth. I see this design as a bouquet of dried flowers. “Inflorescence” is a botanical term for a group of flowers arranged on a stem.

Worked top down seamless in the round, this round yoke pullover is decorated with stranded colourwork floral pattern with floats on the right side around the yoke, an asymmetric hem and cuffs.
