Hakuji is a boxy, cabled pullover worked from the bottom up. The body is worked in the round to the underarm, then the front and back are worked separately back and forth to the shoulders, which are joined with 3-needle bind off.
Like the other crops we feature, Hakuji can be easily lengthened to suit the wearer. The pullover can be worn WS out. Enjoy different faces of cables.

* Delicate Merino and Merino Light are essentially the same product produced by two separate mills for Walk Collection. As a result there is a slight yardage difference between the two yarns. They are completely interchangeable for this project. We will send you the line based on the color you select. You may not specify between the two bases.
