Dusala

 

Dusala is one of 16 designs in  Åsa Tricosa Ziggurats: 16 elegantly seamless knits


(available from Purlescence & other stockists)

The simple, chic silhouette of this classic cardigan provides a perfect palette for all kinds of colour play – and there are lots of colours to play with in the Rohrspatz & Wollmeise collection of colours.

Choose a neutral and highlight it with bright bursts of colour, or keep it all within the same tonal palette. Either way, this simple design with contrasting buttonbands and double knit rectangles of colour on the back will catch the eye both coming and going, and keep your interest as you knit.
Wollmeise Blend knitted at a slightly denser gauge than usual provides structure, with rich, subtly shifting shades of hue and the soft halo of cashmere. Like all Wollmeise semi-solids, this yarn has a mere hint of variegation – just the way I like it.
