Pattern Details

A very fun, seamless knit, Kyoto features an easy yet interesting lattice-like stitch. It made me think of a kimono or a samurai armor, so I named it Kyoto, a beautiful and mysterious city. ~~~ This cardigan is knit seamlessly from the top down. Sleeves are worked in the round. Stitches are then picked up on the front edges and collar to work the edging.
