In the last ten years, there has been a resurgence of interest in vinyl records. Our Audiophile DK is a poncho designed in homage to a classic twelve‐inch LP. Knits and purls form ridges and grooves that mimic the spacing and look of a vinyl record, and the swirl shaping is reminiscent of a spinning disc. Worked the round in simple stitches with graphic punch, Audiophile DK is a cheeky, quick knit sure to spin you right round.
