Included in the Coastal Knits collection, Gnarled Oak is a basic cardigan that features a stunning, embossed cabled oak leaf motif. This sweater was inspired by a very special location on my coastline. An eerie, ancient forest of oak trees that are completely twisted and bent with age. The kind of trees that you would think only exist in storybooks. I've never seen oaks like this anywhere else.

Gnarled Oak is knit in one piece from the bottom up. The sleeves are knit separately and joined at the yoke.
