Knitting Pattern - YUKI No. 6 Bolero Jacket | ITO

Lightweight Jacket Pattern

The YUKI No. 6 bolero jacket design, a collaborative effort between Japanese knitwear designer Yuki Kushida and Tanja Lay, showcases an intriguing blend of simplicity and geometric elegance. The clever geometric shaping employed in this design yields unexpectedly striking outcomes.

YUKI No. 6 stands out as a feather-light bolero jacket, perfectly suited for transitioning from daytime to evening wear. It offers an extra layer of warmth without obscuring the stylish ensemble underneath. Crafted from the delightful combination of ITO Kinu and ITO Sensai, renowned for their featherlight and silky texture, this bolero introduces a touch of sophistication to any attire, accentuated by its gracefully curved silhouette.
