Karen Sweater X - Aizome

Karen by Eri Shimizu

I have been long an admirer of Eri’s patterns – she has an incredible eye for detail, and her designs are superbly wearable – and when she agreed to design a sweater in Miss La Motte Yarn… I was over the moon!

Karen – which means lovely, pretty in Japanese - is a circular yoke sweater worked from the top down. There are two sleeve options to choose from – a simple sleeve, or my favourite – the Flora sleeve. The Flora sleeve requires no cable needle – all stitches are worked in ‘twists’ and ‘slips’ making this seemingly complex design very enjoyable.

I have curated a few colours which I think is in keeping with our original ideas of a wearable sweater with a hint of rustic about it. The pattern uses merino-linen singles which provide an interesting yet super soft textural feel; and the speckles are just delicate enough not to interfere with the textural stitches.
