Are you familiar with the Japanese knitting magazine amirisu? (It translates as “a squirrel that knits.”)
This lovely magazine features a minimalist aesthetic, unique stitch work, and up-and-coming designers. Each issue is just divine.
So you can imagine our delight when we learned that the Spring 2014 issue features a pretty shawl made up in Spud & Chloë Fine. Can we just say that it’s a stunner–top-down construction, ethereal lace panels, and an intriguing, but not difficult technique known as Vikkel braids.
It’s an engaging bit of knitting; try it for yourself in your favorite shade of Fine.
