This pattern was inspired by the green Skovmærker (Galium odoratum) or sweetscented bedstraw, a small plant with a sweet-smelling foliage, that I love to pick from the forest and dry up in little buckets.

Skovmærker is an easy top down yoke sweater with delicate textured stitches on the yoke. It has a boxy and slightly cropped shape but can be knit longer.

It is important to pick a lofty yarn with a great stitch definition for the pattern to show properly.
