Product details

This design began as a stitch pattern rather than an idea for a garment. I was playing with a combination of stitches, trying to create a fabric reminiscent of the raindrops that represent our West Coast winters. My original submission became what is now the published Wellington hat. Amanda and Fiona, loving the raindrop pattern stitch, asked if I could design a garment with it.

I set out to create a cozy, grandfather-type cardigan with a lengthy body and sleeves for a sweater you could live in. Pairing this silhouette with the luminescent qualities of Sweet Fiber’s neutral colourway Paper Birch resulted in a finished garment that literally gleams as raindrops would.
