The Mountain Armor is a modern take on a classic design. This knit design is based on a dickie concept. One of my favorite things is to refine or put a spin on something vintage, classic, or nostalgic, and see how it conforms to today’s times. Dickie’s were an odd piece of fashion back in the day for men. A false shirt front. The cables here help keep some of the masculinity. The length helps keep the tradition of a standard scarf. The versatility comes in with the neck portion being a cowl. A variety of simple stitches helps keeps this knit piece fun and interesting. There is no back to this design. It is worn as an accessory over garments.
The Mountain Armor was made in collaboration with Lion Brand. This is my first design in collaboration with Lion Brand. I’ve been in touch and had an ongoing relationship with Lion Brand for some time now. Working alongside them with Our Maker Life. This will be one of many new designs to come. I can’t wait to share what my imagination has to offer alongside many other GREAT fiber designers! You can find this kit on Lion Brand’s website.
