The tree of life is an enduring and powerful symbol that has inspired artists since ancient times. Though it is prevalent in most mythologies, I particularly associate it with Celtic traditions, and have worked to embody that in this design.

The cardigan is a seamless knit worked from the bottom up with inset sleeves knitted from the top down on sts picked up around the armhole. Princess line darts create a flattering fit.
