Saint Lunaire-Griquet is a bottom-up, textured, colourwork circular yoke. The textured stitch embedded in the colourwork yoke is meant to accentuate a speckled yarn against a high contrast background. Stars in the night sky. Like building blocks, the body and sleeves are round after round of an eyelet basketweave stitch bordered by a twisted stitch diamond cable along the sides.
