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.
