Understory is my forest story about comfort, style and cosiness. Unusual, modern construction makes you feel special, fingering weight yarn mixed with delicate mohair thread pleasantly wraps you and gives the sweater a rustic, forest look. And all of this is complemented by nice-looking patterns and texture.

Understory is a project, that is even knitted “differently”, a project with a very loose fit. Large swathes of material fall beautifully on the sides, waving with your every move. It’s a definitely untypical design, which can be perfectly adjusted to your needs. You can easily change it’s style by choosing a mix of fingering yarn and mohair lace thread or a single thread. Both choices lead to wonderful result, each in its own style. Everything depends on you!
