AVFKW x Olga Buraya-Kefelian - Kika


Kika Vest by Olga Buraya-Kefelian // featuring AVFKW Annapurna

A few years back, we were lucky to collaborate with Olga Buraya-Kefelian for our Pro-Verbial Yarn + Fiber Club. As you might know, the Pro-Verbial Club is a celebration of shawls and the numerous forms they make take, naturally-dyed yarn, and knitting. Every year, four designers are featured, and they create an exclusive design for the club.

Kika, today's featured pattern, is Olga's Pro-Verbial design and her take of how versatile a "shawl" can be. And we love it. Kika is such a wearable garment - vest, scarf, wrap, or cropped outer layer. She originally knit it out AVFKW Annapurna in the club colorway Tangerine. We are so happy to release this happy Summer-y color to you today.

More great news - Olga has reknit Kika in Neighborhood Fiber Co. Studio Sock, and we couldn't be more impressed with the result. Neighborhood Fiber Co. yarn features such rich, saturated color as well as gorgeous subtle shades -- the pairing is terrific.

The Kika Vest has the ability to transform into a vest, scarf, wrap, or cropped outer layer. The result of this transformation provides the wearer with numerous options for styling. Worked with a custom stitch pattern that creates differently textured looks on each side - dimensional square basket weave on one and diamond eyelet on the other - this knit is reversible.
