Product description

The always-innovative Olga Buraya-Kefelian brings us a modern pullover in Shelter, pairing a high-relief fabric with bold construction for a futuristic look. Slender welts accentuate the scoop of the hem, which is shaped with short rows to produce a silhouette Audrey Hepburn would have coveted, and the perfect ring collar completes the effect.

Koto’s body and sleeves are worked in the round to the underarm, then worked flat with simultaneous shoulder shaping on the front and back. The short rows use the Shadow Wrap method, which is fully explained in the pattern. The collar is worked from stitches picked up after seaming and faced with stockinette fabric for added structure. Tiny facings at the hem and cuffs make for a beautiful, minimalist finish that doesn’t interrupt the lines of the sweater.

Pale colors such as the sample in Snowbound will amplify the corrugated texture of Koto, while dark shades will diminish the effect.
