Cabin Life Cardigan

*Interpretations Vol. 7 is here! This 7th volume of the truly heartfelt collaboration between Joji Locatelli and Veera Välimäki includes six themes, six words with two designs inspired by each word, showing a personal take on each of these themes.*


*The year 2020 added a layer of different circumstances to the book. The photographs were taken on the same day, but on opposite corners of the world; Joji's in Argentina by Charly Barros and Veera's in Finland by Jonna Jolkin.*

I am a city girl. Born in the city, grown in the city, stuck in the city... How is it possible, then, that every time I’ve been up on the mountains, I’ve felt that’s where I really belong? Where my heart pumps faster, where my lungs breathe deeper. Not every dream is meant to be chased after and I know I wouldn’t change my life in the city with my little family for anything. But when I close my eyes and I dream of the perfect setting, my mind flies to a log cabin, lost at the end of a winding road up on a cliff.

It is no surprise then, that when I dream of the perfect knit, I always think of garments that I would wear in that imaginary life. Warm, cozy, natural knits. Rustic, full of cables, timeless heirlooms.

This cardigan is knit from the top down. The construction starts at the shoulders, first the back and then the fronts. All the pieces are joined at underarm and then continued in one piece. The

sleeves are picked up and knit in the round. It features a shawl  collar and I included instructions for optional patch pockets (not photographed) that can be sewn to the garment once blocked...

because cabin life requires them!
