Ibukun tells a lovely colour change tale and boasts a gorgeous neckline that truly stands out. It is knit bottom up in the round to the underarm where the front and back sections are divided and worked flat. Shoulder stitches are then seamed together, and sleeve and neck stitches are picked up and knit. There’s a lot of fun to be had with this project.
