Veronika Swoncho Kit
This Veronika Swoncho is such a stylish design by Cocoknits' Julie Weisenberger. We knit our version and created our kits from Shibui Knits Pebble and Silk Cloud held together, as Julie calls for in her pattern. Ours is in Shibui's Glacier colorway created in partership with Julie Hoover. So this swoncho a confluence of three incredibly talented makers!
The Veronika is a perfect cloud like, cool weather layer that you can throw over anything - keeping you warm and making any outfit that much more chic.
Veronika is knit from the bottom up. The front and back curves are created using short rows, using the YO method of short row shaping. The best part of knitting this lovely garment? After the curves, everything is joined, and the pattern is seamless and circular all the way up.
Our kits include all the yarn you'll need and the Veronika pattern.
General knitting skills, provisional CO, and short-row shaping.
