This cropped jumper is inspired by the little red t-shirt a certain teddy bear wears while devouring honey and galavanting in the woods with his friends. It’s also a tribute to my grandmother, Winifred, who went by Winnie. She loved Winnie the Pooh and had a giant stuffed version sitting in a rocking chair in the corner of the room I always stayed in when I visted her as a child. Winnie taught me to knit when I was nine years old, and I haven’t put down the needles since. She passed away almost two years ago, but I carry her legacy with me every day.
“Some people care too much. I think it’s called love.” – A. A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh
