Tui

9.00

A good dose of comfortable, a dash of lovely detail and a splash of whimsy – there’s a good chance you’ll live in Tui, all day, every day.

Designed with relaxed drop shoulders, fun contrast hems and just enough slouch to feel good, Tui is a sweatshirt that gives you casual with a twist. Slip Tui over jeans, leggings or a pretty skirt and you’ll feel at home curled up with a cuppa and your knitting, or perfectly dressed for popping out to lunch.

Knitted from the top down, Tui is a simple, enjoyable knit that’s great for adventurous beginners and experienced knitters alike.

Full of clearly explained techniques such as short rows to create the high-low body, tubular bind-off and hemmed edges, Tui is the sweatshirt we’ve all been waiting for.
