Growing up in one place, there’s a knowing and comfort in the curve of the coast, the rise and fall of the mountains and the architecture of the native plants.

It’s as if the shape of those things lives deep within your bones. And so to it is with the coast of Aotearoa New Zealand.

There’s a belonging that grows from diving into dancing Pacific waves beneath majestic toetoe fronds reaching to the sky atop sand dunes that whispered the rush of taking an adventurous leap onto the beach below.

Toetoe cardigan captures some of that enticing comfort. Knitted from the top in delicious DK yarn, Toetoe’s cosy collar and relaxed fit make you feel instantly “at home”.

Set-in sleeves worked with short rows create a flattering fit and textured panel of fronds down the front give an easy, rhythmic feel.

Including charted and written instructions, Toetoe is ideal for experienced knitters and adventurous beginners.
