ITO Urugami

URUGAMI Header

Urugami combines the lightness of paper with the soft touch of wool. A twisted paper core is wrapped in fluffy wool.
The mixture of these different materials produces a smooth yarn with a clear stitch definition.
The grip and drape of the knitted fabric are peculiar and unique.

Purple Coke Top

Purple Coke is designed for the yarns ITO Urugami and ITO Tetsubut can also be worked with other ITO yarns e.g. ITO Sensai instead of ITO Tetsu to get a warmer and softer version.

The oversized and cropped raglan shirt is worked in rounds from the top down. Then the short sleeves are finished with ribbing.

Purple Coke Sweater

You can find and buy the pattern by Katrin Schneider on ravelry

Purple Coke Sweater is the sleeve version of the shirt Purple Coke.
I also added a collar and long ribbed cuffs to the sweater. The instructions for both can be left out to get the same look as the Purple Coke shirt.

The used combination of ITO Urugami and ITO Sensai is just perfect for spring, the sweater is warm, very soft and incredibly light.

The slightly oversized and cropped raglan pullover is worked in rounds from the top down. Then the sleeves are worked in the round and finished with ribbed cuffs.

Sample is shown in size 3 (41“ / 104.25 cm) with 7” / 18 cm positive ease. I recommend a smaller ease for bigger sizes.
