Aranaranja is the cover design for Åsa Tricosa Ziggurats: 16 elegantly seamless knits
(available from Shephardess & other stockists)
Aranaranja is a cosy, stylish, zingy turtle neck that can be sleekly fitted or knitted a little wider for more comfort. The pattern gives instructions for both variants .
This turtleneck brings you the somewhat futuristic style of Fubarite at an aran gauge.
Alpaka Walk, a vibrant felted alpaca/merino blend from Dibadu, creates an extravagantly plush stand-up turtleneck. The cording below the waist is quietly understated, yet holds its own against the bold, textured cuffs and provides vertical detailing to contrast with the horizontal lines of the cuffs and collar. The citrussy orange colour will brighten any day. And, just for fun, there is a contrasting hidden lining.
The cording allows you to sneak in extra increases for a more relaxed fit, and instructions on how to achieve this are supplied.
Folded textured rib collar, knit sideways
Tailored shoulders & slight waist shaping, slight ease (with a wider version provided)
