A very fun, seamless knit, Kyoto features an easy yet interesting lattice-like stitch. It made me think of a kimono or a samurai armor, so I named it Kyoto, a beautiful and mysterious city.

This cardigan is knit seamlessly from the top down. Sleeves are worked in the round. Stitches are then picked up on the front edges and collar to work the edging.
