Midori wanted to knit a circle yoke pullover with a snowy and frosty cable pattern, like rime ice (freezing fog) on branches and snow-covered trees. In north Japan, rime ice and snow cover trees thickly and build hulking shapes, which are called snow monsters. I have knitted voluminous snow monster cables and needle-shaped rime ice cables.
Snowy Forest is worked from the top down in the round.
The circle yoke pullover was designed to feature a deep yoke with bold cables. The pattern comes in two different length options: cropped and regular.
