There seem to be a nice number of Norwegian pattern items coming out this fall but I've also noticed the more simple and normally unwearable snowflake making an appearance. I first thought I should save this post for December but it's already cold and that's enough for me. Two of my favorite brands have come with snow-flaked knitwear this season, Engineered Garments and Nigel Cabourn. While Mr. Cabourn's comes from a very direct reference from the photo which sparked an evolution in his own career and the Ascent of Cabourn - the Engineered Garments cardigan seems to not quite fall into place with this fall's collection, but still looks like something I wouldn't mind wearing. The actual sweater itself is a great cardigan and the added unusual pattern is off-key enough to be interesting but the colors are simple enough to be fairly easy to wear, at least in the winter.
