The Two Trees Cardigan is inspired by The Last Algonquin, the biography of Joe Two Trees, the last Algonquin living peacefully in Pelham Park. The treelike stitch patterns are a tribute to Joe and to the original Algonquin stewards of the Northeast. The cardigan has a traditional drop-shoulder construction, which allows the stitch pattern to be the focus.
