Coucou is a comfortable, slightly flared Ziggurat, featuring a contrasting cable neckline, a cute tuck, and a dainty pocket.

Sleeves are three-quarter length and also finished with a contrasting cable.

There are various options for the tuck: a two-coloured triangle tuck for
intrepid knitters; a plain tuck for those who are less adventurous; and
a more traditional gather.

Coucou is knitted with Suilven from Ripples Crafts. Another magic yarn blend, Suilven has wonderful lustre and drape, the kind of drape that neither clings nor loses its shape. Perfect for the little tuck at centre back.

The green Suilven sample in size 36 is knitted without bust darts.
The purple Wollmeise sample in size 40 is knitted with darts.
