Mänty is a triangular modular-knit shawl, blending meditative stockinette and textural garter with a playful kickpleat border. Knit in a rustic single-ply, the lofty fabric and light halo recall carpets of moss and dappled sunlight on a forest floor.
Mänty, meaning “pine” in Finnish, is inspired by the pine woods and blue waters of my step-family’s Finnish home – the memories we carry into adulthood of childhood summer holidays spent roaming through forests, foraging pinecones and shells, jumping in and out of freezing cold lakes.
