With the graceful ease of an ancient vase, Ainur Berkimbayeva’s Amphora Pullover wears the precision of classical antiquity. This sweater is knit from the top down, starting with a simple neckline that shifts seamlessly, as if sculpted by clay, into the yoke. Ainur’s love of construction is evident in the neat increases that create a beautiful spiral around the chest and shoulders, melting into the smooth lines of the sleeves and body. One hundred percent fine Falkland merino, Wigeon is wonderfully suited for this tidy twisted rib design. It’s made of three neatly spun plies, which create an even fabric with excellent stitch definition. It comes in fifteen solid colors, so pick your favorite and knit a beautiful vessel of your own!
