Kira K Designs is a line of original knitting and crochet patterns with a streamlined and eminently wearable aesthetic. Research on historical clothing, which Kira did during her former career as a theatrical costume designer, is a strong influence on her design sense, and many patterns reference styles from the 1920s through the 1960s. Kira's family history of Danish Modern furniture design is also an important influence on her patterns, resulting in garments and accessories with clean lines and intriguing details that are both interesting to make and easy to wear.

The meandering lines of eyelets in this sweater entertain both the eye and the knitter. Two lines of eyelets swirl around the body from hem to the top of the cowl, while a vertical line of eyelets runs up one sleeve and three bands of eyelets encircle the opposite forearm. The sweater is mostly knit in the round, with the set-in sleeves sewn in.
