Knitting Fever

LENU, designed by Anke Strick, is worked seamlessly from the top down. The neck is shaped with short rows and then you work in the round and increase for the shoulders and then for the body and sleeves down to sleeve separation. The sleeve stitches are then placed on hold, underarm sts are cast on, and you continue to work the body to the ribbing. After the body is completed, the sleeve sts are picked up again to work the sleeves top down in the round. The neck finishing is worked last.

We're pairing Anke's design with Airspun by Jody Long Yarns. Extrafine merino is blown through a polyamide core to create a soft fuzzy yarn with a delicate halo effect. This unique construction yields a durable yet featherlight weight fabric that is ideal for cool weather garments and accessories.
