Day 8 of 12 Days of Winter Kit Collection - Series 5 for 2021
Designed by Aubrey Busek
Winter trees are one of the most beautiful parts of the season. Whether they are flocked with snow, or strung with glimmering lights, these are a symbol of the holidays all around the world. What better to decorate a table or mantle than a trio of knitted trees? Equal parts whimsical and sophisticated, the Trio of Trees plays with a subtle color palette inspired by the season. Superwash extrafine merino wool Dona is pleasant to work with, while one color held with sequined Cotton Gold is reminiscent of holiday lights and ornaments. The Trio of Trees is sure to be a staple in your winter décor for years to come.
