Moreton Bay Cardi is named after the famous Moreton Bay Fig Tree. I was captivated by the undulations and deep grooves that you could lay in actually. The fig tree is an ancient symbol for the “tree of life’, connecting us to our inner nature that transcends the earthly domain. This design is my interpretation of such a heavenly tree with its playful Roman rib stitch accents throughout the body and arms. This design will keep your attention and allow for relaxation simultaneously.
