“Namu” (나무) is the Korean word for “tree”. In traditional Korean paintings, the tree symbolizes resilience, constancy, and strength, and their gnarled and twisted nature is depicted in the all-over cabled motif. An adaptation of my cowl pattern, this pullover will keep you warm and cozy and oh-so-snuggled-up in squishy cabled goodness!
