  • Sakae - Cardigan

    This is a cosy and colourful cardigan that I imagined snuggling up with in pleasure and serenity. I find joy in feeling good about myself, protected by a large, cosy cardigan in the midst of my healthy family. With the pandemic sweeping away our entire relationship with others, it is essential to refocus on yourself to take care of your loved ones. I imagined this cardigan while thinking of my mom. It was very difficult for her to know that we were far away, without being able to see each other. I would knit this cardigan for her. What better way to take care of your family than to surround them with the love that we put in our knits for them? My joy is seeing my mom in my knitwear.
