For the upcoming winter, Nukumori is an accessory that can warm up a part of the body that often gets neglected: knees!

Nukumori is worked in two kinds of ribbing to keep the shaping at a bare minimum, but still provide a good fit. It also incorporates a simple crochet technique that adds a secure grip around the leg.

The 9 different sizes mean there is one Nukumori for everyone, while the beautiful hand-dyed yarn adds a special touch to the finished object. Rainbow speckles on grey, like fireworks in the night sky!
