The kimono shape has been everywhere this season and we’ve embraced its generous shaping with our favourite yarn. Visible seaming and a lightweight fabric makes this oversize cardigan flattering to wear for every knitter.

Schematics are included for how to piece together each of the panels that are knit individually, making this our favourite sweater for knitting while we travel. Vivacious Volume 1 is all about celebrating the good things in life: simple stockinette and clever construction. Rum Raisin is a garment that is all about combining those perfect elements to create a great outcome. Where did the name come from? Well, have you ever soaked raisins in rum? Another combination we love!
