Designed by Amy Christoffers

Acer saccharum are the Sugar Maple trees that surround Amy's house, and this sweater was named for the resemblance of the stitch pattern to the tree’s bark. Acer is a satisfyingly versatile cardi with eyelets and cables, vintage flavored but modern. It is fun to knit and is incredibly wearable.
