Simple Ziggurat Jubilæum Edition KAL by Åsa Tricosa

OPTION
  • Invented by Åsa Tricosa, the Ziggurat Method is a fantastic method for knitting top down garments seamlessly!

    tailored & top down
    seamless
    simultaneous set-in sleeves
    simultaneous neck-shaping
    built-in everything (pockets, buttonband, seamlessly lined hems
     now available in 10 sizes – 32–54
    absolutely minimal sewing in of ends! (In fact, if your were to knit from a huge skein with yardage enough for the whole sweater, you would have precisely 6 ends to weave in at the end.)

    Join us for our first Ziggurat KAL (Knit-Along) and celebration of a decade of Åsa's designs with her new edition of the Simple Ziggurat Sweater!

    This perennial favourite has been revisited time and again over the years by Åsa with new options for gauge, necklines and the addition of playful details.

    This Jubilæum Edition of the Simple Ziggurat allows you, the knitter, to play with all of these options and variations to customise your sweater to make it uniquely yours!

    Have a play with yarn and colour combos, pick your collar and hem, add a playful pocket if you like, shaping or not, optional bust darts (are your boobs Smallish, Middling, Busty or Wowza?) and end up with your own unique Simple Ziggurat!

    Not a seam in sight. No joining of pieces.

    See it on RAVELRY. And check out our Instagram LIVE with Åsa where chat about this KAL and yarn options!

  • About me


    I am a Swedish knitting designer who now lives in Germany with a Danish husband.
    I knit with abandon.
    I’ve knitted my way from Sweden to Germany via New York and Boston and Singapore, and Sussex.
    You will soon notice that my designs are mostly seamless and top down, and that I’m seriously attracted by clever solutions.

    The Ziggurat sweater is my signature. It’s a seamless, top down, contiguous or Simultaneous Set In sleeve method that I have developed and polished since my first Ziggurat saw the light in 2011. I’m still somewhat obsessed by it.

    Just a little bit later I cleared my desk of notebooks and scribblings about J.S. Mill and a turgidly slow-forming PhD dissertation – “knitting” appears exactly nowhere in his Collected Works. I’m sure you can see the problem.
    I’m a knitter, not an academic. I know there are academic knitters –  and knitting academics. I’m just not one of them.

    My other somewhat edged-out-of-the-way obsession is food. Good food. And crusty bread. Our house pet is a sourdough starter (which I happily share).

    By the way, Åsa (Ooh-sah or Awe-sah) rhymes with Tricosa in most or many languages. Söderman rhymes with not much at all.

    I hope you enjoy my designs!
