Hello, I'm Anne Kuo Lukito. I'm a hand-knitting designer and my works have been published in many books and top magazines, such as Knitty, Interweave Knits, Knitscene and Twist Collective,. I've also contributed designs to and worked with several yarn companies. Recently, I designed the Fall Collection for Manos del Uruguay yarns.
While knitting is my dominant craft now, I've always been a crafter and sewer. I used to make my own clothes in high school and made jewelry. Two years ago, I got a bit into silversmithing as well.
Aside from freelance design work, I am also have a couple of publishing projects coming down the pike. I also have a small boutique business, Crafty Diversions (craftydiversions.com), which distributes other designers' patterns and products to yarn shops and retailers.
Mera, Revisited is a versatile raglan shrug in which the garment and sleeve borders feature a reversible cable pattern, allowing you to wear the shrug in many different ways. The collar can be worn flat or folded back, and the sleeve cuffs can be worn down for a three-quarter sleeve, or turned up for a half-sleeve.
I originally designed Mera for Bijou Basin Ranch. Requests were made for a pattern that would accommodate worsted weight yarns. Mera, Revisited includes a wider upper sleeve to and looser fit to accommodate using a heavier yarn, yarn substitution information and instructions on flipping the cable design. Shrug is worked top down and sleeves worked in the round. After the body, sleeves and sleeve cuffs are completed, stitches are picked up to work the reversible cable border.

Please note that Mera, Revisited does not have the same fit as Mera, which was intended for a tighter fit with little-to-no ease using a pretty fantastic yarn for which I have not found a comparable substitute in terms of gauge, texture and yarn's inherent properties to recommend to knitters. Mera is only available for purchase through Bijou Basin Ranch. Mera, Revisited is a separate reworked pattern, not an errata to Mera.
