The Saturnalia Yoke

On December 21, 2020, the Winter solstice, Jupiter and Saturn will come within 0.1 degrees of one another, forming the cyclical, 20 year, great conjunction. When these planets are aligned we can expect the end of one era and the birth of another, the intensification of old forms dying as new growth and fertility replaces them.

This two-color brioche, reversible yoke speaks to the transition from a very dark winter to the growth and rebirth of spring. Its reversible nature allows the knitter to choose two opposing color stories and wear the yoke however fits the season. Its high neck can be rolled down for a cooler wear or kept high for those blustery winter days.
