Rapport

Drapey, cozy, elegantly simple: Rapport is comfort knitting with a dramatic result. The design is completely reversible and symmetrical, so it looks good however you wear it. The combination of Shibui Silk Cloud and Tosh Merino Light yields a fabric that is soft and warm, with a comforting weight and flickering colour. To make Rapport, you need to know how to knit, purl, and slip stitches. That’s it. The pattern includes instructions for three widths; the length is easily adjustable to suit your tastes. The sample shown is the largest size and is modeled by Josephine Ankarah, who is 5 ft 7 in/ 170cm tall.

Designed by Elizabeth Elliott in collaboration with Shibui Knits and Madelinetosh.
