CIRRO

Cirro (‘cirrus’, a kind of cloud) is a romantic sweater knit top-down in the round, in one piece and with no seaming.

Just after the rib neckline there is a section with short rows to rise the back. The yoke is very full and is knit in lace stitch. It is shaped by a series of increases hidden in the stitch pattern. Once the lace pattern is knitted there is another show row section to rise the back. The body and the sleeves are very simple, knitted in stockinette stitch.

Design: Valentina Cosciani | Yarn: Biches & Bûches
