Lace & Fade Boxy by Joji Locatelli

July 26, 2022

This week, we are spotlighting Joji Locatelli's newest design, Lace & Fade Boxy.  This beautiful sweater features bands of lace that are knit using mohair silk lace and bands of garter stitch, using a sport-weight yarn in a five-colour fade.  The boxy silhouette is a trade mark of Joji's and, speaking from experience, it's so comfortable to wear.  We loved this pattern so much that on release day we developed three kits.  These kits have been so popular we decided to dye up all the colours and offer them as an update.  Here they are!

We are selling the yarns individually, so you will need to put together your own kits.  To do this, you first need to select your size.

SIZES
1 (2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10). To fit bust circumference 30 (34, 38, 42, 46, 50, 54, 58, 62, 66)“ 75/80 (85, 95, 105, 115, 125, 135, 145/150, 155/160, 165/170) cm. Shown in size 3 on a 36” bust.

This sweater has a lot of positive ease built in. This means that the finished product will be much bigger than your bust measurement. However, not all the sizes have the same amount of ease built in, as larger sizes don’t need the sweater to be so oversized.
Choose a size according to your bust measurement in the list of sizes above: if your bust circumference is 40” 100 cm, choose size 4.

FINISHED MEASUREMENTS
Body circumference: 59 (62½, 66, 66, 73, 73, 73, 76½, 76½, 76½)“ 148 (157, 165, 165, 183, 183, 183, 191, 191, 191) cm.
Sleeve circumference at elbow: 8¾ (9¼, 9½, 10¾, 11½, 12, 13¼, 13½, 14¼, 15¼)” 22 (23, 24, 27, 29, 30, 33, 34, 36, 38) cm.
