Quince & Co Konti Pullover Project


Simple yet striking, Konti’s zig-zagging lace pattern calls to mind rippling currents in a swift-moving stream. Worked seamlessly from the top down, this pullover’s exceptionally clean construction and minimal finishing allow the lace motif and Quince & Co Kestrel’s fluid drape to take centre stage. Shown here in colourway Lira, a warm and neutral earth tone, we think Konti would look equally stunning in a bright jewel tone like Rosehip or Bordeaux.


Sweater is worked from the top down, worked flat through the neckline and upper body shaping, then worked in the round for the lower body. Sleeves are picked up around the armholes, shaped with German short rows, and worked in the round.
