Statement Knits

One of my more enduring obsessions is with Atlanta based, knitter/magician Yokoo. Not only do we share a fondness for austere haircuts but Yokoo makes these amazing hand-knit accessories (scarves, bows, bags, etc etc) and sells them through her  Etsy shop. Once word got out about her craftiness she was able to quit her day job and now knits for 8-9 hours a day (source)!! This vintage Escada cardigan made me think of Yokoo because it’s the perfect arrangement of patterns, shapes, and buttons. It’s Definitely a little on the bulky side but that’s OK for such a statement piece.


the red seems to vibrate! i think the combination of texture and brightness make it difficult to really capture.
