Piilo(hideaway in Finnish) is a relaxed, boxy pullover with dropped shoulders and a neat chimney neck. Designed by Jonna Hietala for Laine Magazine.
The Piilo is knitted from the top down, mostly in the round (in the beginning, the Back and Front pieces are knitted flat). Even though it is a simple, uncomplicated sweater, there are a couple of tricks to learn: the stripes are jogless and the colour switches in the ribbing invisible. Don't let this put you off though! If you are an intermediate or advanced knitter that loves learning new techniques then you will enjoy the finer details of this project immensely!
Your kit is carefully packaged and delivered to your door with everything you need to knit your project.
