A variation on the French word ‘trouver’ (to find), trouvaille translates as something lovely discovered by windfall or chance. The knit and purl stitches come together organically and this pattern seemed to simply grow from an idea of wearability and comfort.

This pattern is an intuitive, relaxing knit with a unique tie & loop closure. The familiar top-down architecture and simple instructions result in an incredibly wearable and versatile piece.

The cost is reflective of the entire kit (yarn, pattern, needles, notions).
