Twisted Pattern Line The Fisherman and His Boat Pillows - by Sorren Kerr

It is hard not to feel a sort of romance when it comes to classic aran fisherman sweaters, sailboats, and the sea. “The Fisherman” is a cabled pillow based on a classic aran honeycomb pattern often used in fisherman sweaters, while “His Boat” is a simple stockinette pillow with bold stripes and a duplicate stitched silhouette of a sailboat.
