Marimekko 2022 - Beyla Viita Knitted Cardigan
Oh we do love a good knit and this collection we have selected the best of the best. We just want to live in one big cosy world, and that means beautiful knitwear!
The Beyla knit cardigan is made of cotton and it features the Viita pattern. The long sleeves are dropped at the shoulders and the sleeve ends and hemline feature wide ribbing and rolled up edges. The hem has small side slits and it is slightly longer in the back than in the front. The straight knit cardigan has a relaxed fit.
Antti Kekki got the idea for the Viita (thicket) pattern from thick and wildly growing plants. The pattern depicts the delicate early summer with its fresh bendy branches and buds about to blossom. Viita was created by combining compositions of different branches and blossoms cut from paper into a larger pattern.
