Japanese (Romanji) for (n) gather.

I have long wanted to work up a design to pair
habu textiles bamboo and stainless steel yarns
[been in my stash for what seems like forever].

Seeking to combine the drape of the bamboo
with the robust and malleable silk stainless steel;
a celebration of the sheen and weight of the knitted fabric.

So. My offering:

An elegant top down, seamless one piece cardigan:
tailored shaping for excellent fit
and multiple styling options.

I am personally thrilled with the result;
it’s been getting some serious wear these past few weeks!
Definitely one of my favourite designs to date.

The pattern provides 11 sizes.
I think it works beautifully with cashmere + steel
and probably with a lightweight sock yarn, too.

If you’d like to win a copy of the new pattern,
[or reimbursement if you cannot wait!]
