The inspiration for this five-piece collection designed by michiyo comes from the yarn itself—the world’s most inspiring and beautiful Meadows.  Hikari or ‘light’ in Japanese is a perfect name for the collection as it represents the lightness of the yarn and the lovely fabric it creates.

Rourou is a Japanese word that means hazy light, the kind that filters through the leaves of trees on a sunny summer day. The front and back of Rourou are worked in pieces separately from the bottom up creating the sleeves at the sample time with side increases.

This pattern is written in general construction part of the garment but the stitch pattern is only in chart.
