My friend Hazel gave me a cardigan she had purchased on a trip to England. The traditional Fair Isle pattern in the cardigan reminded of snowflakes, and that’s what inspired this piece.

I came to an impasse about how to arrange the buttons on Winter Blues. Social media came to the rescue. I polled my friends on Instagram and Patreon, showing them a photo with two different button arrangements. They mostly agreed on the best arrangement, which is the one I went with.
