Designer Pam Allen says, “The embroidery was inspired by the embroidered mittens and socks in the Bohus collection. I like the chunky, rustic stitches I used—a double strand of yarn makes them quick and adds dimension to them. The colors are semi peasant. Red, white, and blue would have been traditional, but I opted for a soft green for the white and a heathered red. Like peasant embroidery, though, the colors are lively and there’s good strong contrast between them.”
