Ahni is a uniquely textured pullover with a 1950’s vintage tinge featuring a scoop-neck with deep ribbing mirrored at the cuffs and hem. It is worked bottom up in pieces, and knits up quickly in this lovely, squishy yarn with great stitch definition. It’s the perfect wardrobe staple for office or weekend wear.

Ahni is published through Twist Collective, and can be purchased on the Twist Collective site for $7.
