Kouki cardigan and hat are inspired by the pilot jacket and the hat. The body of this cardigan is worked back and forth in one piece to the underarms. Fronts and back are worked separately above underarms. A circular needle is used to accommodate the large number of stitches. Sleeves and shawl collar are worked separately and attached at the end.
This oversized cable cardigan is designed to wrap (“maku” in Japanese) you in a delicious chunky knit. It is made of one simple rectangular piece. A provisional cast-on method is used to work one side of the garment, then stitches are later picked up to work the other side in order to place the cable motif neatly at the centre back of the garment.
Ryo features an all-over diamond pattern for the body section. This pattern is worked over stocking stitch, making it subtle. The cardigan is worked back and forth in one piece to the underarms. Fronts and back are worked separately above underarms. Sleeve stitches are picked up and knitted top down. Shawl collar is shaped using wrap and turn sh...
This low-necked vest features an all-over Fair Isle pattern. A vertical-striped steek is used for the armholes and front neck, allowing the entire garment to be knitted in the round.

Long and warm, in super-trendy spring colours, this chunky snowflake cardigan is the perfect solution to all your winter/spring wardrobe woes!
Miranda bag is knitted in double layers. Starting from the base, which is knitted flat, the body is made by circular knitting. The use of Shetland wool and thick cable panels help provide support and give much denser and stiffer fabric to minimise sagging. Once you start, you’ll be surprised how logical the bag is constructed.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
This triangular shawlette is worked from the centre outwards. The ruffled edging is crochet, which is made by first casting off loosely then four double-trebles are worked into each stitch. This method creates dense and delicate ruffles that work for most of the lace yarn. If longer ruffles are desired, work extra rows of single double-treble (d...
