When we lived in Toronto, my husband used to wake up early on Sunday mornings and walk to Kensington Market to write at Moonbean Coffee Co. This sweater is a love letter to those mornings, to wandering through Kensington Market, to knit night at my favourite yarn shop, and to all the connections I made there.

Moonbean is a cropped, elbow sleeve pullover that’s knit top-down in a circular yoke construction. It’s a perfect wardrobe piece for layering over dresses, long sleeved t-shirts and jeans, or as an extra layer of warmth when relaxing around the house. It’s for city walks and country meanderings. Wear it to gather with friends, or for Sunday mornings of solitude.
