Hanami YS585 Ladies' Sweater

This delicate-looking sweater is very much in the Japanese tradition. It is uniform (back and front are identical, sleeves are unshaped and fall 7" below the armhole), but nevertheless surprising, because of the colourway changes from piece to piece. The sprightly leaf patterning (only 12 rows) gives yet more air and interest.

You can see each of the downloadable designs comprising the Noro Hanami Book collection here.

'Hanami (lit. "flower viewing") is the Japanese traditional custom of enjoying the transient beauty of flowers.'-- Wikipedia. The complete Hanami book, comprising 13 new designs for Spring 2014 (including this one), is available in print only at your LYS/Noro stockist for only $14.95.
