Discreet shirring at the edge of the drapey funnel neck, hem and cuffs creates gentle waves, providing a relaxed and coherent structure. With generous ease, this is a three-season wardrobe staple suitable for layering.
Jolt of Blue, like its heavy lace sister, Petrichor, features a variation on the usual Ziggurat construction. Starting with the collar knitted in the round, the softly sloping shoulders extend, each in turn, from the collar base, and the stitches are picked up on right-side rows, going counterclockwise.
Less zigging, in other words. But no less exciting.
The intense colour of WalkCollection’s single ply Cozy Merino really glows in simple and smooth stocking stitch.
