"Cairngorm is personally nostalgic for me, when I was a small child my grandfather knit me several jumpers with stripes of simple colourwork. He combined Norwegian patterns shown in black and white with Shetland wool in 3 or 4 colours that my mum would pick out. The patterns aren’t taken straight from any one of those jumpers, but are a little sampler of some of my favourite wee motifs found in traditional colourwork from around Northern and Eastern Europe. Those jumpers made me feel special and beloved, and I hope that you, or anyone you gift the hat to, will feel the same way when wearing it. Cairngorm is named for Bill’s love of the Scottish mountains." - Ysolda
