Full of stylish details, the Peasant Blouse has a stand-up neckline with pleats and contemporary balloon sleeves. This versatile blouse has the perfect drape thanks to Fino yarn, a blend of merino wool and silk in fingering weight.
The Lightweight Pullover is knitted in straightforward stockinette stitch with delicate slip-stitch details at the border ribbings to show off the beautiful texture of Milo. It’s a top-down circular yoke pullover, where the increases create vertical lines that mimic large pleats. The unfitted sleeves gather at the wrist for a small delicate balloon shape.
The Vest is a hi-lo garment, knitted bottom up with part in biased fabric and textured slipped stitches - a super fun and fast knitting project in Franca. Please note, the gauges in this pattern are given over 6” instead of the usual 4” because of the bulky yarn.
The Hat is knitted sideways, with a beautiful sequence of slipped stitches. Franca makes this a quick-knit project and the design beautifully spotlights the yarn’s thickness and unique, watercolor-inspired palette.
The Wrap is a parade of textures and fades with Fino and Cabrito, a mohair yarn. As it is knit in garter stitch from the center out, it is not only an interesting construction but a reversible one as well!
Wear the Cowl in many different ways, including sideways, over the shoulders, draped entirely at the front, or in any way that your imagination drives you! For the beautiful drape and durability, this reversible cowl is knit with Alegria Grande.
The Coat is knitted from the top-down with raglan sleeves, an open-front construction, and large cozy pockets. The easy-to-memorize stitch pattern creates a beautiful textured fabric, which is enhanced by the handspun thick-and-thin nature of Wool Clásica!
