WELCOME.... we are so excited to be offering this fabulous pattern as a workshop.  

The Twigs Sweater is designed by Japanese knitwear designer, Junko Okamoto, whose patterns combine minimalism with graphic patterns, textured stitches. Her knitting style is often referred to as a fusion style. So many of her patterns are on our "to-knit-list".
