The panel of paired leaflets on the back of the hand is reminiscent of the compound leaves of the herb known as meadowsweet or “queen of the meadow” (Filipendula ulmaria). It is common in damp meadows throughout Europe, grows tall and produces conspicuous clusters of ivory flowers with a characteristic sweet scent.
Both the flowers and the green parts of the plant possess a pleasant, aromatic taste, and have been traditionally used as home fragrances or to flavor beverages and vinegar.

About the Designer: Sabine Kastner
Sabine rediscovered her knitting needles in 2013 after a long hiatus, and since then rarely leaves the house without a small project that allows her to try out new techniques and interesting details. She loves science, music and nature, which are also a source of inspiration for her designs.
