Above is my version of the Noraneko Pullover knitted using the Kokon Bleu Kidsilk in the Semi-Solid colourway. I omitted the lace front panel from the front of the knit (I did not knit Chart B on the body). I made my sleeves full length and added a 1 x 1 rib cuff to the end of my sleeves on 4.5mm needles.
You too can knit this gorgeous Noraneko Pullover by the lovely Megumi (@megcatknits on instagram) using the fabulous KOKON Bleu Kidsilk Mohair.
Megumi explains that "Noraneko”, in Japanese, means “stray cat”.
When I saw Kokon Bleu Kidsilk, it reminded me of a girl who looks like a stray cat. She loves dancing on the street, seeing the graffiti on the wall, and lying on the grass in the park on a sunny day. I tried to imagine her favorite pullover. Happy knitting!"
＊＊＊ This pattern is knitted top-down in the round with raglan yoke using some eyelets & cables, stockinette stitch, and a bit of rib stitch. It is knitted using two strands of mohair lace held together.
I have also included below the whole Kokon Kidsilk range of colours. I think this knit would look brilliant in any of the colours in this range. Please take into consideration that these balls are only 25g so I have included metres and yards for each size.
