The Bouquet Sweater by Junko Okamoto // featuring AVFKW Horizon yarn
Junko does it again! We were floored when Junko released her Papa sweater last Spring, Kristine immediately set out to knit her own version. Last Fall, Junko began hinting at a new design - one which uniquely combines carrying yarn across the front of the fabric in conjunction with knit colorwork. So intriguing! Kristine began test-knitting the Bouquet Sweater for Junko, and as she watched the pattern emerge as her needles clicked, she was mesmerized! This is absolutely unlike any fabric she has knit before. And she absolutely loves it. She is so excited to add this sweater to her handmade wardrobe.
ABOUT THE PATTERN: This sweater comes in one size. The main color requires 8 skeins. The contrasting color requires 2 skeins. Please purchase this pattern directly from Junko. This kit does NOT include the pattern.
March 2021 update: Junko used Quill as the main color, and Dried Hops as the contrasting color. Kristine made her version of Bouquet out of Quill and Indigo Blue Sky. We are sold out of Quill, and recommend Nest as a replacement. Nest is similar to Quill in that it is a marled color: one ply is made from dark brown wool and one from medium brown wool.
We are so grateful to Junko for creating these beautiful designs!
Junko also designed a shawl! Click here for The Bouquet Shawl.

When working with yarn dyed with indigo, it is common and natural for the blue dye to rub off on one’s hands while sewing. This is called crocking. Although the goods have been washed, it takes pressured contact to release the extra indigo dye. Your handwork is part of the indigo dyeing process. The blue dye can be removed with hot water and soap. From working closely with indigo dyed materials through the making process, typically, the excess dye has been removed, and the crocking will cease.
Please note the fiber content of the material you are working with, and follow the applicable instructions:
Cotton or linen - Machine washable on cool cycle with pH-neutral soap. Lay flat to dry.
Superwash Wool - Machine washable on cool cycle with pH-neutral soap, though hand wash recommended. Lay flat to dry.
Wool and Wool blends - Handwash only in lukewarm water with pH-neutral soap. Lay flat to dry.
