Featuring a fitted, patterned yoke and flared sleeves, this long, flowing cardigan is worked from the top down and flares out over the hips. The cardigan is worked in the round and then steeked.
The rare Weirwood tree is found in cold, northerly forests but lives forever if undisturbed. This sacred tree has white bark and five-pointed crimson leaves. The wood of the Weirwood tree is hard like bone and objects carved from the wood last many years.
