PAGAN SKY

The pagan sky was inspired by Latvian folklore and the energetic significance of ancient Latvian signs of strength.
In Latvian mythology, the sky is considered to be the oldest deity of the cult of light, it is the roof of the world, the sphere in which the leading force resides.
The sweater is knitted from alpaca yarn and accented with combinations of amber Latvian characters. They show the sign of Dievs (God) - the basis of all Latvian writings, the sign of the feminine Saule (Sun), the cross of Māra and elements of Austra (dawn) tree. These strong Latvian signs were used by our ancestors for beauty, strength and protection and are still very much in use today.

PARK AND REC PULLOVER

Remember those baseball raglans … the ones you throw on for the picnics, games of catch, and weekend hikes? Well, the Parks & Rec pullover is their updated cousin: a warm, mohair sweater with a comfy, easy feel. The Parks & Rec pullover is worked from the bottom-up, but completed with seamless, top-down sleeves. No waist shaping to worry about and a classic V-neck completes the look. This is a simple sweater with a lot of thoughtful details for fit and style—but it’s also infinitely customizable. I’ve included some notes for possible modifications. Pair this sweater with my upcoming Pattern Modification course and you’ll have all the tools you need for making your Parks & Rec one of a kind!

APERO VEST

Apéro vest is not just for summer! The idea for the design was born in the heat of the summer lockdown while longing for social connection. It was inspired by memories of hot summers in the South of France, sharing a bit of Rosé on ice with my friends during the apéros we enjoyed.
But the apéros in winter were just as fun :)) With a layering piece like this, the possibilities are endless. As long as the yarn is fingering weight, you can make the vest as cold or warm as your heart desires.
