Good evening everyone,

A couple of weeks ago my good knitting friend Hanna Maciejewska released a new pattern called Fino , part of our ‘All The Year’ serie.

Hanna’s contribution to this project comes right on time as we are starting to feel winter coming in the air.

A relaxed fit with drape in the fabric mixed in with some lace patterning in the back; effortless and chic I would call it!

I wanted to share with you Hanna’s thoughts and process on this design.

Here is what she had to say:

“Fino” is not your average top-down sweater!

Slightly boxy at the top and with short-row shaped overcast shoulders, this pullover in A-line silhouette has a closer fit around the bust while flaring out towards the bottom in a casual way, culminating in a most nonchalant asymmetric pleat.

The pleat as well as the sleeves are knit in reverse stockinette for extra texture, and accented seams add further points of visual interest at the sides.

If you thought that was about as far as a laid-back sweater can go, wait until you’ve spun it around and discovered the delicate lace panel on the back! Its intricate stitch pattern truly matches the finery of the wonderfully delicate yarn that gave this garment its name – casual elegance at its best!

Which color would you make yours in?


Happy knitting to everyone!
