Our YUKI Collection is a design collaboration between Japanese knitwear designer Yuki Kushida and Tanja Lay. Deceptively simple geometric shaping unifies this line, in some cases with surprising results.

 

YUKI No. 5 is a rectangular shaped turtleneck slipover vest. The slipover vest is knitted bottom up in a simple intarsia technique, with shoulder shaping. After knitting the front and the back the shoulders are seamed. The sides are linked by using buttons instead of seams, the turtleneck is picked up and knitted in rounds.
