Åsa Tricosa Ziggurats: 16 elegantly seamless knits
(the individual patterns will be made available later, one or a few at a time)

Fubarite has all the virtues of a Ziggurat with the added bonus of exquisite detailing. They come together in this modernist take on classic styling.
The smooth ply structure of Rohrspatz & Wollmeise DK brings the symmetrical textured cords in the lower body into relief. Optional bust darts and waist shaping allow you to customise fit. The face-framing stand-up collar is knitted sideways onto the neckline in a dramatic textured rib. The lined hem is a smart finishing detail and an excuse to add a surprising burst of colour, in this case the zingy Wollmeise, Zarte Knospe (tender buds).
A word of advice: The rib of the collar and cuffs does not behave equally well in all yarns, and some become too loose and floppy. Therefore it is even more important than usual to knit and block a swatch before knitting with abandon.
