You too can make this beautiful Floral Kokon Blouse using the original yarn that Teti used for this design. The Floral Kokon Blouse was born in collaboration with Kokon yarns. The name “Kokon” in many Slavic languages means “cocoon”, and so this design is: a beautiful floral cocoon, in which you’d want to hide from the outside world.
The pullover is worked top down seamless in the round, featuring floral colourwork running across the bottom of the yoke and continuing on the body. Sleeves have an elegant balloon shape, and both bottom and neckline edges are finished with stockinette hem in contrasting colour. Instructions for a classic fitted sleeve are also provided.
