Named Osku old Irish for friend is this relaxed dress adorned with large sculptural cables and crowned by an I-cord. The sleeves are all in stockinette stitch to allow the cables to stand out and are worked top down. While the body is worked bottom up in the round - with shaping for the hips and bust - to the armholes, then back and forth with only the shoulders sewn together. Osku is knitted in the divine Silky Wool by Elsebeth Lavold and can be worn together with the matching Cowl; Piran.
