Shibui Axis - Twig Version

Shibui Axis - Twig Version

“Modern lines and a relaxed fit.”

This fun-to-knit Shibui pattern incorporates techniques that give the garment a professional-looking finish. And when you're done with the knitting, you end up with a stunning layering piece -- a long vest that can be worn open or closed.

Because we knit this piece with a single strand of our newest Shibui fiber, Twig (instead of a strand each of Kavo and Pebble) and skipped the part where you knit the lapel with only Kavo, the knitting is even more simple. And the fabric created with Twig is fantastic! The garment drapes nicely AND holds true to size - it's drapey with integrity. That's hard to find. Modern lines and a relaxed fit - what a great combination.

Pick up the Axis pattern below, and then choose your color of Twig. The Basic Details tab will tell you how many skeins you need for your size. (Please note that if you don't see the pattern below, that means we are temporarily sold out. But we'll have more again soon, so please check back!)
