I come from a landscape that is virtually treeless, so the forests of Oregon left a lasting impression on me. The memories of a Spring road trip along the Mackenzie River are particularly vivid, and inspired this popular and enduring design. To recreate those memories I designed stylised firs for the main pattern; they evoke the dense, high backdrop of conifers that blocked out the sky. The border design is my take on the Mackenzie River, flowing at eye level by the road. I designed a pattern reminiscent of floating leaves, and filled it with the colours of light on water, and of dark undergrowth through which the first hints of Spring were starting to appear. I made similar trips in September and October but an Autumn version of the design was a long time coming because I lacked a suitable palette of colours. Getting it right involved designing my Hebridean yarn range with the shades and subtlety that I needed. The Oregon Cardigan is available in the Autumn colourway.
