There are so many reasons to love the new Itch to Stitch pattern, Orono!
Kennis has a great eye for classic styles with a twist, and I’m a big fan. I love every single piece I make with her patterns and this one is no different.
Orono is meant for stable knits and features:
- High stand up collar;
- Raglan sleeves (with shoulder darts);
- Petal front;
- High-low hem;
- in seam pockets (these are awesome!).
The collar can be worn standing up or folded down if you don’t like the feeling of a high collar, and it looks awesome both ways.
I love how the pattern is constructed and assembled and the pockets are fun to make!
The raglan sleeves are so great.
No puckering, no twisting, just plain perfection!
I mean… look at it:
The fabric I used is a double knit (open weave + lining) and it was a perfect choice for the pattern. It has about 15% horizontal stretch.
Orono has such a flattering silhouette, it can be worn with a top or shirt underneath without being boxy. <3
I’m ready for spring, but having an awesome sweater does help make the winter days more bearable. 😉
