Delicate as a cloud and light-as-air, Wafty is the perfect layer to extend a perfect evening. With a rucked (frilly) collar, back gather detail and a generous puff sleeve narrowing dramatically to the wrist, Wafty is a curious combination of elegant, feminine and funky.

CONSTRUCTION
Knit with the Ziggurats method and a single strand of mohair silk, Wafty weighs almost nothing yet none of the magnificent details Åsa is known for are missing.  The open DK gauge and deeper than usual armhole framed with a puff sleeve creates a roomy fit with absolutely no bulk. The sleeve finishes by narrowing drastically below the elbow with a two-color stripe to the wrist and finely worked double cuff -striped on the outside and solid on the inside. As always Åsa gives the knitter options, so the sleeve can easily be worked shorter – stopping at 3/4 length or wherever the knitter prefers.  The sweater finishes with a split, lined hem — double-knitted or knitted in separate layers with 3-needle bind off. There are two collar options - a feminine frilly collar (Shown) or a funky overlapping collar with a small striped detail mirroring the sleeve.
