The Scotlander is a cardigan that can be worn while riding horses through the dark forest or while tending to one’s herb garden. If you are new to cables, this is a good sweater for you. There are only four cables in the body of the sweater and they mirror each other; meant to represent two people joined through space and time. If wearing this cardigan makes you feel like you’ve woken up in another place or era, that’s not unexpected. And if you find yourself making turtle soup while wearing it…well, wink wink!
