Inspired by crocheted shawls she saw worn in TV-show versions of the American West, designer Imke Nathusius took the abundance of shawls made from granny squares that she saw and adapted them into Prairie Skies. The yoke shape is an echo of granny square wraps that keep shoulders warm, while the sweater itself is a contemporary way to mix knit and crochet into one wearable piece. Knitting and crochet are so often separate but here they work as a team to create something special. Like the horizon meeting the sky, the two crafts both contrast and blend, creating a feeling of expansiveness, that sense of possibility you feel when you are present in an open place and feel the sky around you.
Please note these are preorders and will ship mid October
Prairie Skies is knit in Pishkun. Please see photo for sizing info and how many skeins per kit
