Loop - Honeyblossom


Beautiful Honeycomb yoke cardigan designed by Yoko Hatta for loop, London. One size fits most! Adjustable fastening with fronts designed to overlap by 12.5cm/5" so the size varies on where you place fastening. Lovely gathered back.

We have recently re-knit this in De Rerum Natura Ulysse and it's beautiful! We used a 3.25mm and approximately 7 1/2 balls of Ulysse in the colour 'Eucalyptus'.

* Last three photos are of the De Rerum Natura Ulysse yarn.

This cardigan offers incredible versatility, as it comes in one size with positive ease. You can use a variety of gauges and needle sizes when knitting with Ulysse yarn, taking advantage of its softness and high loft. It's a great choice for experimenting with different gauges and achieving beautiful stitch definition, especially when working with cables and other textured designs.

Bust: 91.5 cm/36 inches
Back width where yoke ends:64cm/25"
