Ranunculus has been on our to-knit list for a long time and wow - now having knit one, we are over the moon! The sweater is so beautiful in person. It is hard to capture the pretty details and the subtle nuances of the fabric on camera. Hopefully, you will take our word for it!
This sweater is knit top-down. Across the collarbone and chest there are lace and textured stitches designed to resemble a necklace.
Our version of the Ranunculus is knit by holding together a strand of Wild Bloom with Frond, resulting in an incredibly lightweight and soft sweater. There are a number of options Midori Hirose includes in the pattern, here is what we chose:
+ Smaller neckline
+ Long sleeves (without diagonal cuff)
This bundle includes enough yarn to knit the sweater as modeled. So if you want a shorter sleeve and / or larger neckline options given in the pattern you are covered.
Please note: Our sleeves are knit to the same spec as outlined in the pattern, though come to a 3/4 length on Kristine. If you would like a longer sleeve or longer body, please consider purchasing more yarn. (There was enough yarn left for 52.75" to knit a longer sleeve.)
Ease: Kristine is modeling the sweater and her full chest circumference is 38". Our sample is a size 52.75".
Finished Bust Measurement: 46 (48.5, 50.75, 52.75)(55, 57.5, 59.5)(61.75, 65.25, 68.5, 70.75)” / 117 (123, 129, 134) (140, 146, 151)(157, 166, 174, 180) cm

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.
