ok, but you guys, seriously. it has a HOOD! hoods are just practical when you're outside. it blocks the wind and keeps you warmer than a hat and cowl alone.
i also really love the silhouette. big drapey over-layers are my absolute favourite. i think this would be perfect knit up in julie's nurtured yarn or yoth's father base.
|did i mention one of my favourite things about andrea is how many tats she has? i love knitters with ink.|
and finally, those shorter sleeves are perfect for when you're foraging and don't want your sleeves all caught up in the muckiness of playing in the dirt. i did mention that, right? the whole reason i'm so obsessed with this design is because it's the most perfect layer for wearing while foraging in the woods. maybe i'll take a trip sometime and knit it while i'm on the trip. the relative mindlessness of not needing to be writing a pattern while i knit it kind of lends itself perfectly to road trips. now i just need to convince someone to take me on a road trip...
