Introducing Teti's / @nutsknitwear gorgeous knitwear design using both Kokon DK and Kokon Chunky Mohair Yarns in the one knit.

Teti writes "Imagine the tales an orchard might share. Michelle of Kokon yarn dyed these colourways inspired by my photo of a cherry tree orchard, full of greens and pinks and yellows, with spring in every drop of the dye. I planted beautiful flowers and a ginkgo tree in her orchard.

This romantic cropped pullover is worked top down in the round featuring floral stranded colourwork pattern in a soft fluffy mohair contrasting colour running across the round yoke and at the bottom of slightly puffy sleeves."
