Ryokō is the Japanese word for “travel.” The slightly asymmetrical Ryokō wrap features columns of eyelets that travel both upward toward the center and back downward away from it. The sections of garter ridges between these columns create two sets of steps: Along the top edge, the steps form a gentle, rolling edge, while a more pronounced path of steps travels down and back up along the bottom. Knit with a light fingering weight and a kid mohair/silk yarn held together, Ryokō will be a source of warmth and comfort along your journey, wherever it may lead.

Yarn Requirements:

This pattern requires a light fingering weight and a lace weight mohair/silk to be held together. Yarn requirements for the yarns used in the sample are as follows:

Sunshine, or other light fingering weight - 490 yards
Floof, or other lace weight mohair/silk - 459 yards

This pattern has been test knit and tech edited. Many thanks to all of these individuals for their invaluable time and input. Any errors that may be present in this pattern are solely my own.
