Designed by Hiroko Fukatsu

“Hitofude” means a single brush stroke in Japanese, and this open front cardigan with an allover lace pattern is worked in one “yarn stroke” -- a continuous strand without cutting the yarn. The knitting stroke starts with the upper body and sleeves worked together in a rectangular piece, then moves to lower body, where the lace pattern increases evenly, creating a gentle drape.
