Leonie Using Lang Lily
Leonie Using Lang Lily
Leonie is a relaxed, slouchy tee created by one of our design crushes—Cocoknit’s Julie Weisenberger. We love how this everyday top knits up quickly and is so easy to wear and style. And bonus—the pattern adds some techniques to your knitting repertoire!
We knit this version of Leonie in Lang’s brilliant, blooming Lily. This worsted-weight yarn is a lightweight blend cotton blend with a meshy, ribbon-like strand. Gradient, shifting washes of color are rhythmically spotted with contrasting color dots for a vibrant, playful fabric.
