non troppo is a dream of cloudy lightness and funky elegance, inspired by ma non troppo, a recent Ziggurat pullover I knitted for my mum.

This perfect wrap for coolish summer evenings is knitted on the bias, generous, asymmetrical, striped – and has both textural playfulness and flair.
Choose somber or wild colours as you please and settle into some soothingly simple knitting.

non troppo just could be the perfect commuter or read-while-you’re-knitting knit – nothing complicated is going on (and goes on for quite a while).

The sample measures approx 50 cm by 210 cm (20 in by 83 in).
(this is pointy point to pointy point – length along one side is approx 185 cm / 73 in)
