this new and gorgeous design by the japanese knitwear designer Eri is called achikochi. it is a circular yoke pullover worked from the top down. “achikochi” is a Japanese word meaning “here and there”. eri has chosen this name because of the motifs pointing in both directions. the photographs show the versions in light grey and dark grey.

how to determine your size : take a sweater from your wardrobe that you love and measure its dimensions. it may not have the exact same shape, but it will give you an idea of the size to choose. the biches & bûches designs are intended loose, we suggest choosing a size a bit bigger than smaller ! <3
