''This cardigan was inspired by a trip to Montreal. I saw this yarn being dyed in person which got me to thinking of a seed and how it starts from something so small and grows into something bigger and more beautiful. This yarn is from the Louise Robert Design Collection. Like a seed, this color was born from an idea and flourished into beautiful skeins of yarn. Thinking so much about seeds I knew my cardigan had to be knit with a Seed Stitch design. Like a seed, the skein of yarn then grew into a classic, easy to wear, beautiful cardigan and it all happened in St-Bruno on Roberval street'' - Andrea Yetman
