"Paparde" is Latvian for "fern". I found myself, inspired, by the seasonal changes from Winter into Spring, and the botanical life that "springs" up as the climate here on the East Coast, becomes warmer. As I began charting out the yoke design of this swoncho, I couldn't help but notice how the shift of seasons was quickly influencing the design of this pattern. It is a beautiful marriage of geometric and symmetrical shapes, with a very organic and free flowing floral pattern.
