This gorgeous and ethereal blouse knit with the lightest of hand-dyed mohair chunky yarn from KOKON is our newest kit for you.
We are thrilled to be able to put together the original colourway in 'Copper with Madder' as well as another one of the stunning colour pairings from KOKON 'Leaf with Avo'. The Leaf colourway will be available as a kit in a week or so. (very soon!).
We also sell the KOKON Chunky Mohair as single 50g skeins and minis all beautifully hand-dyed in South Africa in an exquisite palette of colours. You can see other colour ideas over on our blog from December 4th at Loopknitlounge.com.
The design was a collaboration with KOKON, meaning 'cocoon' in Slavic languages, which is exactly what the design encapsulates. A beautiful floral cocoon in which to wrap yourself.
The whole thing is worked top-down seamlessly and in the round, featuring the floral colourwork running across the bottom of the yoke and continuing down the body. Sleeves have an elegant balloon shape, and both bottom and neckline edges are finished with stockinette hem in a contrasting colour. There are instructions for a classic sleeve as well.
There is quite a lot of positive ease in this pattern so have a look below at the finished measurements with ease when choosing the right size for you.
