Notify me when this product is available:

Cirro is a romantic top-down sweater featuring a full lace yoke, cropped body and balloon sleeves. It's both super wearable (think high-waisted jeans!) and a statement piece at the same time.

It's designed by Valentina Cosciani in beautiful Biches & Bûches Le Petit Lambswool and Le Petit Silk Mohair for our Issue 6. If you're curious, you can read more about Cirro here!

The kit includes the yarn needed for your size. The "Skyward" kit contains the original colors used in the sample: Blue Grey for Le Petit Lambswool and Light Grey for Le Petit Silk & Mohair.

Please note: The kit does not include the pattern.
