“Here’s a little number we’ve had a lot of luck with.”

When I started teaching this garment construction at my LYS, I had to come up with an adult sized cardi that could easily be knit up in the three sessions that we allotted for class time. I came up with the Koke Garden. Koke is the Japanese word for Moss. It features 3/4 sleeves, and a warm collar that acts like a scarf/cowl. My favorite part is that the Seed st. motif is worked on the sleeve edges at the same time that you are working up the front bands. Here’s some pics:

(I’ll have it up on Ravelry before the end of the month.)

"Koke" is Japanese for Moss, any type of moss.

Sample is worked in Chunky Mochi & US 13s

See the really cozy collar.

The seed st. border around the middle disguises the seams in the front.

    I just love, love, love the knitted Kirigami concept and what you have done! Thank you for sharing your method. Beautiful colorway, gorgeous choice of stitches for fabric.

    Looking forward to following more on this subject,
